This is my sister’s favorite place so we go here when we can get together. Ribs are some of the better from chain-type restaurant. Fun, loud, great bar... and crowded. Go a little early to avoid long wait time in weekends.

Food was horrible but our beverages were good. Cornbread tasted rubbery, the wings were unbelievable large and flavorless and our burgers didn't taste like real beef. Will never go back to that location.

The baby back ribs tonight were outstanding. Very meaty and tasteful. Server was great. Also. Cannot go there without having the corn bread appetizer. Also the $10 off $25 coupon always comes in handy.

I recommend the nachos. They are tasty, plentiful, and reasonable in price. The menu however is extensive. Our server was great.

Food is ok. Service is usually not great. Few if any servers know what beer they have when they claim to have lots. Not the case. Ok if nowhere else to go but definitely a chain.
