Who gives me that needs to be cut dull knives. Not steak knives. Tough to cut. They got confused with the orders. They put out about five potato chips. For five people. My husband had ribs and he was very disappointed. Sauces were good.

This is a fun place to take the family for a reasonably priced, yummy barbeque meal (without you having to do any work!). Cute atmosphere, always friendly and efficient servers (who demonstrate the different sauces in the cutest manner!), and good barbeque. Excellent ribs and chicken...always consistently good.

Good BBQ, truly finger licking good, and right sized portions for a reasonable price. We stop by when ever we can, but it's a bit out of the way for us.

Went to the Thousand Oaks location a couple of weeks ago, ordered the 2 meat combo , chicken and tri- tip , the chicken was tiny and I only received about 4 thin slices of tri - tip...
they were tasty , but for the money not enough ! Wake up restaurants ! in this economy you need and edge , don't be skimpy with portions !

Great baked beans with more meat than you see in some chilis. I had awesome rib tips the first time, followed by 3 bad rib tips. Generally any type of meat is very good, and you have 5 different bar-b-que sauces at your table.
I like it, but it is pricier than I like. You do get a lot of food for your money.
The feast for 2 on Tuesdays is the way to get a lot of food for a decent price.
