Cashier was very friendly and helpful, however food was nothing to rave about. I had ribs and they were a little on the tough side.

Feathers on my cooked chicken sandwich. Ribs dry and touch. Fries old and refried. Sauce good. Owner website is down. Owner please check on your staff and the quality food you claim to serve!

The food is generally good. However, the customer service is as "ghetto" as it gets. Flip-flops, unkempt t-shirts, and loud.
