Very simple place. Don't expect anything fancy....dishes, atmosphere, menu. Was expecting to walk in to a heavy smoky smell and a nice crusty chunk of tender brisket. But didn't find any of that. Maybe we just ordered the wrong thing.

I have wanted to eat here for about 15 years. We finally stopped and it was a real disappointment. Our service was awful, it was overly warm and the food was okay, not at all what we were expecting. Will not return.

I had higher hopes for this place. The food was ok, Nothing special. My meat was very dry and tasteless. The ribs left something to be desired. The restaurant was nothing special to look at. Would not return.
