The waitress messed up our order, the food was terrible. We order the appetizer size cracklen Corn bread and it was worth serving anyone, the cracklen was nothing more than fat and it was to greasy to eat.

It is very conveniently located right off of I-65. The food was good. We both had BBQ on cornbread; it was tasty, but nothing extra special. The restaurant was clean, and the service was good.

This is NOT the Stan's of old. I am sure some will rate this place high, but I don't think I would be inclined to go back. Prefer to remember Stan's before the current ownership. Not even sure what I had was real stuff. Very...More
