3 adults, 1 teen, 1 grade schooler, 1 toddler went to celebrate a job promotion. Family rib dinner. Plenty for all & some to take home. We dug into those awesome ribs, munched on great fries & onion rings, loved the sauces. Big cornbread muffins--Yumm!

We had ribs, burger, brisket, fries and cole slaw. Everything was very tasty. We ate lunch on a Saturday and they warned us the wait for food would about 20 minutes. That was accurate.

While the food is pretty bland it is decent for a chain. I like the sausage because it is thick and spicy and the juices explode in your mouth.

The burgers are very good here. I think they use fresh ground beef or something. Very delicious. I prefer them over the other bbq meats - which are also very good.

The ambiance was good and so was the food. I wasn't blown away, but it was solid. I would recommend the ribs.

This is a chain restaurant so not sure what other reviews are expecting. It's pretty decent BBQ, nothing to write home about but it gets the job done. Brisket was a nice texture and juicy. The corn bread was pretty good, that stands out for...More

If you want a quick bbq fix then this place is for you. If you want something more complex then I said say don't bother. They do have some nice plates that are pretty good and their prices are very reasonable.

Tried this place based on other reviews and was rather underwhelmed. Had the Texas ribs and was not impressed. Meat quality wasn't great and quantity wasn't great. Cajun fries were good but I'm afraid this place wasn't that great. Better off going up the road...More
