The wraps my husband had were good but the "potato chip nachos" were disappointing.Service would have been better if not for the time we had to wait to get our food...not a huge crowd so not thinking that was the reason...convenient to the hotel we were staying in as we walked over.

Food was okay. Service is slow. Well drinks are $1.50 on Saturdays. Fajita salad had a lot of meat on it.

There was some excitement taking place in the bar area, but not on my plate. Seems like a place where drinking is the main activity. Being in the motel next door, my main action for the night was to get something to eat quick and then hit the rack. I would put this place about even with others that might... More

We just went here because there were not many choices in town and we were tired and it was close but it was VERY good and we will be back for sure

Drinks are a little pricey. They now are smoke free. Burgers are generally good and chicken wings are good. Over the years we have been served undercooked food here more than once including bone in wings but the lady visits have been fine. Desserts suck! Specialty burgers have skimpy toppings and they are 13$

Even if the service is a little slow at times, this restaurant is fun. Good food and on Thursday nights they have Karaoke night in the bar area. Too fun to watch. Good place to catch up with friends and family as well as enjoy watching whatever sport they have on the televisions. My spouse and I usually split an... More

We ordered 5 hot wings, 1 kids hamburger, a small side salad, and an adult burger. Burgers were dry, salad wilted and soft, the wings lacked flavor. Add soda and a single beer - We spent $70.00 - The chicken wings were tough and rubber like and the hottest sauce they offered for the wings was lacking heat. The bar... More

How many time can I say average experience, except stunningly loud bar. I asked to be seated away from the bar where the music was so loud it was impossible to talk. The wine list was so average, I ordered a beer. The really average menu gave me an average choice of "The Blackjack" hamburger. Average burger with average condiments... More

Went into the place on a Thursday night. Hungry for food, peeked through to the main dining room. Empty. Alarms should have went off. I asked to be seated at the bar, more people. Ordered a burger. Patties were burnt. Not tasty at all. The night would have been terrible if it were not for the Karaoke and the bar.... More
