Start off - great service! Wife Had the all you can eat ribs. Fall out the bone tender and very tasty. I had the pork chop. Very tasty, but was just slightly overcooked, a little dry. The salads are outstanding. We love their house dressing....More

The service was quick and all of the food was good but, the ranch, that they said was homemade, tasted like it had a whole clove of garlic in it. I would definitely not eat the ranch again, but I'd go back.

Hi Mike, Yes, we do offer a $13.95 early evening menu daily (excluding holidays) from 4-6pm. It's a 'you need to know about it' kind of menu, so ask for it the next time you join us! Looking forward to serving you soon.
