Was in town on business. Haven't been there in many years. Onion straws great. German potato salad is awesome. Wasn't like I remembered. BBQ Sauce resembled marinara type taste. Nice place, clean, decor is neat. Just not like I remembered.

We drove 30 miles to frequent the old resturant years ago before it was destroyed by fire. It took a long time (years) to reestablish. Was it worth the wait? Barely.... Menu is very different from what I remembered, and overall not as good. I...More
