“Overrated”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

The guy sitting at the desk has no idea on how to treat customers. Watching people coming in the door paying the guy at the front desk to jump ahead of other folks. People come after us and they were served and while we are sitting there for 21/2 hours. Environment was poor no air and people sat there sweating. After a long wait we are told the ribs just came in and we need to wait another 45minutes - extremely the worst customer service experience i have ever had. Not worth going back to this joint. Don't waste your time staying three hours for poor quality service not worth it.

“Over hyped”
Reviewed 12 October 2011

I went there and the person acting as the host was not helpful, he told me that my food would be ready in 15 mins, and 1 hr. 30 mins later we still did not have our food. When we visited the restaurant, the only thing that they had was rib tips. After receiving the food, we discovered that the food was not very flavorful, and fatty. I would not go back, because I think the place is overrated.
