We sought out this place as my husband is a firefighter. It't a very cool place with lots of old fire house items. The menu had a nice variety. I had chicken and waffles. The chicken was ok. I think it was a little overdone....More

Very good food and great menu including vegetarian options. Christmas lights add an interesting touch. Good sauces go great with chicken and waffles. Highly recommend

First visit with my college girlfriends, celebrating a birthday. Good Bloody Mary and mimosas! We Loved the huevos rancheros, shrimp and grits, and chilaquiles verde! And the bananas foster dessert for sharing! Will definitely be back!

Popped in for dinner on Friday night. Got a table pretty quick. Nice atmosphere, excellent music (Sturgill Simpson). Went with the brisket, great flavor, tender. Sides and sauces were good. They make a mean margarita, nice cocktail list too.
