Went here for lunch and although they were busy we got our food pretty quickly. It is a great value as six of us ate for about sixty dollars! I recommend the Turkey! It is mouth watering and tender! Very flavorful and seasoned to perfection!...More

Stumbled upon this place while passing through, and liked it so much we made a point of stopping there on our way back through 4 months later. Get the 'mixed' or 'hot' sauce. Large serving sizes.

2nd time here. Very good quality meats, helpful staff and pleasant ambiance. I got the 2 meet combo, and it was plenty of food.
