The food is very good plus they have a fairly large menu. The only downside is that it's a bit expensive. However you get what you pay for nowadays.

Great family meals. About half of the customers are large family groups with children. Nice BBQ meal selections.

We got the Texas toothpicks for an appetizer and they were not that good. The sliders and tri tip sandwich were pretty good. The mac and cheese and cole slaw were good, but definitely not homemade. Our server wasn't friendly and we waited a long...More
