Although we have to wait for a while for the meals to be served, the food was worth it! Best tasting wedges of all time! Try the fried chicken and the ribs. Oh the ribs. Heavenly.

I am from Auckland and spending time in Hamilton. Was really impressed with food and service being Easter Saturday. Busy but food was very fast in arriving and delicious at that. Have recommended to friends that haven't visited yet.
