We were in town for our son's baseball tournament and had a team dinner here which was quite a large group. The food was over the top good and the service was great. I wish there was one in Southern California.

Famous Dave's BBQ is the best BBQ in this area. They have a good variety of BBQ with the servings being just the right amount of food.
