“Great Barbeque!”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

This is not a saucy barbecue. I loved it! Sevice was a bit slow, but the staff was extremely friendly! Ribs, chicken, baked beans. corn bread, and cole slaw are serviced. Ice cold iced tea and lemonade were our choices to drink. Wait staff are constantly refilling. Well worth the stop!

“Good food but pricey”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We made reservation before our trip to Disneyland so as to ensure a place for dinner. When we arrived after a long day in park, we were seated within 10 minutes. Drinks and food is free flow (except desserts). Anything runs-out just ask for more so come with an empty stomach. The food is good, we truly like the bbq chicken and ribs. I like the sweet corn, baked beans and coleslaw too. There were entertainment during our dinner time.
All of us enjoyed our food and the entertainment but we will probably not come back again because it is expensive. We will probably try another restaurants in Disneyland.

Was pleased with the food and entertainment. This a an all you can eat, and if you bring your own baggie you can take you left overs with you.

“Excellent meat, but pricey”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

It's all you can eat, so I guess it's your own fault if you don't go hungry. Don't eat anything that day and you could get your money's worth. The corn bread is excellent but we tried not to eat much because you gotta save all your appetite for meat. Cole slaw was blah. Baked beans were pretty good, but not worth filling your stomach with at the expense of more meat.

The chicken was the most moist chicken I have ever had in my life. It was incredible. The ribs were pretty good. Smoked sausage was very good.

*Smoked sausage comes during dinner but not lunch...so make sure you go for dinner.

You've heard all the so called experts say that the meat shouldn't fall off the bone. Let me tell you this, the RIBS were amazing and the those experts are wrong. This was the best barbecue I have ever had. It was outstanding and the meat was so tender and tasteful. But wait, don't eat too much because that dessert was worth the price of admission. I'm telling you if you plan to miss anything don't miss this meal.
