Love the grilled pineapple side... rare to find. Brisket very good. Sometimes ribs are dry. Not sure why they are not consistent re quality of ribs. Great corn muffins.. I but the Famous Daves Corn Muffins (box) at grocery store I like them so much.

We absolutely love this restaurant! The service and food have never disappointed us. This is a place worth visiting especially on Tuesday night when they offer their platter special...a great mix of food for a really great price.
