This is a no frills place to eat. It can also be a hit or miss on the meals. I have had great ribs and not so great ones there. My choice is to have my ribs meaty, moist and ready to fall off the bones. Sometimes they don't quite meet my expectations. They did on my last visit.

Always good service, Have never been disappointed. The Daily specials are always good and the 241's work great for my wife and me.

One of the chain Bbq diners. You can expect the same good food at any of them. Generous portions at a reasonable price. If you can't find a local place for a gamble on what to expect, then by all means go here.

We randomly stopped in and WOW it was awesome. We were seated right away and a server took our drink order. Food came out very hot, it tasted great and the portions we had were huge. there was plenty of parking and inside was clean including the rest rooms. I would stop in here again.

Usually, the food and service are great. But sometimes - not so much. Some of the prices seem a little high. Their Baby Back ribs are good - but the portion and rib size may seem small to some people.

Went for dinner with my hubby on Saturday. Hubby had the all you can eat chicken. He commented on how good it was, just needed a luttle more seasoning. I had the pulled pork sandwich with Cole slaw. The Cole slaw was awesome. I would say better than KFC. The corn nuggets were great. Powdered sugar was a great addition... More

When customers complain about food quality in our restaurant, we do everything we can to correct it immediately. The only questions we ask are done so we might insure steps are taken to prevent future occurrences. As the only male manager in the restaurant I can state categorically the conversation you describe never took place. Further arousing suspicion is the... More
