“It's ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2013

I've been here a few times and while the portions are generous, the prices are very high, and service is spotty at best. I've had good and not so good food there. Have even found bones in the bbq chicken salad in the past.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

The brisket falls apart and is so incredibly flavorful! The corn muffins are sweet and moist. I had broccoli on the side and was so happy to see it not floating in butter! The hot links are great, as is the tri-tip.

“Have had better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2012 via mobile

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.

“Fun Barbeque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

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.
