Extremely slow service. Food arrived tepid. Would have sent it back for reheating, but the chicken was already over cooked. Server was nowhere in sight to complain. When she showed with the bill and heard my issues, she never issued an apology. Stay away!

It seems a nice place. Once there is disappointing. The girl was not friendly and was out of beef. The service was slow. The after both my wife and I were sick. I got diarrhea and upset stomach.

The wings were the best ever. We also had the Oinker with egg and it was excellent. I would be a regular if I lived in the area.
