Thought we would try this as the reviews looked good and the advertisement on the radio sounded good. I would have given a much higher rating if the food had been warmer than room temperature. The pulled pork was the best of the 4 types...More

Praising God that every restaurant we stopped at in Dayton had a ridiculous wait. We went 8 minutes up the road and had a fantastic meal at a reasonable cost with no waiting! I wish there was one of these in Toledo!

Great place to eat and great for parties. I have eaten in the restaurant, takeout and catering for a reception. All three were great. GOod amount of food for price.

The BBQ brisket is very good, as is the pork. I prefer the 1/2 Chicken🐔 A lot of sides, beers, and soft drinks. Affordable for families, especially on Tuesday nights when they feature 99 cents mini pork sandwiches or single ribs.
