We had lunch here since we saw it on an episode of Diners, Dives and Drive-Ins. This place did not disappoint! Our waitress was super nice, the prices were reasonable and the chocolate cake topped with chocolate cheesecake is outstanding! We highly recommend stopping in!

I thought this would be pretty good because of triple D but I was wrong wrong wrong. They say they are a smokehouse but there was no smoke flavor to the meat. The soup came out cold, the bowl was hot which mean they microwaved...More
