We had dinner here and the food was very good. Everyone was satisfied. The blackberry tea was particularly good.

But service and quality has declined lately. I am particularly unhappy that corporate has decided that a mere listing of the dished with calorie counts constitutes nutritional information. The previous listing was a little difficult to read but it was all there - wheat, gluten, peanuts, soy, etc. Nada on the new listing. This is the height of corporate callousness... More

We are from out of town and we usually go here when we come in for a visit. Food is usually good. Brisket is usually tender. This visit, our food was cold, brisket was so tough you could barely eat it. We were very disappointed. Don't know that we will be returning any time soon.

Group of 10. Service was fine. A variety of meals were ordered, everyone seemed pleased. Several had been when it was not so good, but all our group seemed to like what they ordered today.

Service is terrible and the food is not much better. Staff is very nonchalant and the restaurant appeared "dirty."

Staff is friendly, service is fast, food is good- not so great but good. Can get a tall beer in a cold glass. Just the thing for after work.

I have been to this restaurant several times, they have good ribs and sides. Every time I have dined in service was great, experienced the same level of service when ordering to go.

The service was ok, we thought steak would be on the menu, but it wasn't. They do have a bunch of different BBQ sauces at the table to try, but the pulled pork was nothing to brag about. Better for a younger crowd, they have pool tables, and TV's, and a full service bar.
