WOW! This place rocks! We chose the combos. Wife said the shrimp is ‘delicious!’ Chicken tenders are fabulous, as is the smoked sausage. Excellent service and fair pricing. The Real Deal!

A great place to eat. I tried the Rib Eye steak with salad and baked potato. They also have a dessert called Molten Hot Fudge Brownie that's out of this world good if you like fudge. We had the famous cheese sticks for an appetizer....More

It's been years since I tried the brunch. It's the same and was very good. Had the Border Stop- great scrambled eggs wrapped in a flour tortilla. Comes with fruit, hashbrown casserole and honey bun. For the price- great deal and there are $.99 mimosas...More

Yummy onion loaf plus many other delicious items on the menu. Pot Roast dinner just like homemade. Pork tenderloin sandwich excellent. Service fast and attention given to each table. Food served speedily.

We are from out of town. This place was not too far from our hotel. Headed to a concert and looking for a restaurant that was not the typical chain (McDonald’s etc). Nice location. Easy enough to get in and out by a traffic light....More

Very close to a 5 star experience for food and service. The turkey croissant with bacon and tomato was the best ever. I requested 'cremated' (well done) bacon and they delivered. In fact, the kitchen manager came to table and asked if our food was...More

I'm from Texas where there's excellent BBQ, so I might not be the best judge of the food here. However, we enjoyed the pulled pork, baked beans and onion straws. The sausage seemed to have just been boiled instead of smoked, but it was okay....More

Got the Sadie size and it still filled the plate. Wife ordered the fried chicken tenders and got a mound of them! They were super nice and substituted mashed potatoes and green beans for the fries and coleslaw listed as coming with the meal.
