Had take away from The Patio recently. Started with the chicken wings - meaty and about 8-9 in the order. A bit spicy for my wife, but I liked them. We then split a full slab of their ribs. Very tender and tasty. Baked potato on the side. We were able to pick up the order at the drive through... More

I was referred to this restaurant by a friend of mine and I am so glad I was. I called and reserved space for 45 people. They had an area set aside for us when we arrived early. You order at a counter and they bring the food to your table. This is great when dining with a large group... More

We had dinner there for the first time. The chopped salad, fish tacos and hamburgers are all good. You order at the counter and then take a number to your seat. They got the food out quickly. Decent house wine too.

There were four of us and each had something different. I had the Mango Salmon and a baked potato and thought it was good. Another had the BBQ chicken-liked it and had enough to take some home. The brisket tacos got a rave review and the spicy corn fritters were enjoyed by all.

The Barbeque Chicken here is one of their specialties and it is awesome. You place your order and then they will bring it out to your table. There are some sports TV's for your viewing pleasure.

The Patio has a good, solid menu and very good food, set in a very casual environment. The food court atmosphere belies the quality of the offerings, particularly BBQ ribs and deep-fried zucchini and mushrooms. Service is fast and friendly.

I have ordered dinner for the family from here a number of times. I order sandwiches, ribs, and sides and we have a smorgasbord at home. It's a great option for a different type a dinner.

We ordered the half barbeque chicken plates and the steak kabobs. The food was fine, but the concept was strange. It was like a self-serve cafeteria meal because this restaurant requires you to get many of the items yourself.
