The place was quiet about 4 people there. We got the pulled pork which wad good but you could taste the ketchup in the sauce. A bit too sweet for my taste.

The beer was cold but there wasn't anything special to rave about. Famous Dave's is much better...

This restaurant exudes a 'country' atmosphere just as it was designed to do. Very 'down home' while away from home. The food is good though my sandwich was somewhat dry...dry enough to ask for some barbeque sauce for it. The fries and onion rings were well cooked and crispy, but for the size of the sandwich with one 'side', the price of over $10.00 was a bit over the top. On the other hand, the service was excellent.

So we ordered to-go on taco tuesday. We asked for the sauce and salsa on the side for 5 of the taco's and the other 6 were "normal" order. We drove 15 min. there to get them and 15 min. back home to eat them. We opened up the containers to discover NONE of them had sauce or salsa on them and the sauce and salsa was never even put in the bags for us. We called to notify them and all they said was sorry, I see them sitting on the counter here, we forgot to put them in the bag. So we had to drive the 15 min. back to pick up the sauce and salsa, drive back, and eat either semi-cold taco's or heat them up in the microwave cooking the lettuce along with it. Absolutely nothing was done for their mistake, not an offer of any kind. They really have gone down hill over the years in customer service. They obviously don't mind not making the customer happy.

Loved the service. The ribs were average, but a good value. Live music, but too loud to talk with others at our table.

Good food, really neat decor, friendly service - no complaints! We didn't try the mechanical bull, but enjoyed watching others trying it out. One table is in a jail cell - we didn't sit that, but that was a cut addition. A great place for relaxed, fun dining at a fair price.
