If was a convenient location.

Did not gave much in selection of decent wines. Did not have the right type of glasses for specific drinks.

Ok for quick and super casual

“Family friendly, Value, Huge portions, great food and service”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

As far as good food in proportion to portion sizes and service, this place has tremendous value. Super casual, rustic interior. Country music. Loud place because of the size and how busy it is. If you have loud kids who do not usually do well in restaurants, this is the place. Chips and salsa are delicious and plentiful. The non alcoholic beverages are very large. The quesadillas were larger than the plate. The salmon salad was large in portion and brimming with flavor. Family fun atmosphere at an incredible price.

“Very good,, fast and exellent service”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

Went to dinner with a customer and his wife. We have been here multiple time before and have had mediocre service at times but the management has been responsive every time. If you aren't happy with anything, ask for the manager and he will do his best to make you pleased before you leave, just give them the opportunity to make it right. I will return on my next trip to the north shore area...

“Great spot on Boston to Maine trip”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Great spot for tasty food, good service and fun atmosphere on trip from Boston Logan to Maine. Nice bowl of gumbo plus gaucho chicken (the chimi verde sauce was fantastic - going to try to make my own now) really hit the spot. Shoestring fries were great and largest portion I've ever seen! My wife had steak fajitas and steak was melt in your mouth tender - unusual in our experience! Topped off with margarita grande, it was great lunch!
