Today I had the Double Pork Chop special served with Smashed Potatoes and Broccoli; My husband ordered the Alex Salad and Rattlesnake Pasta. The Pork Chop was superb with an apricot sauce and my husband loved the pasta. Food is always fresh and delicious.

I was so disappointed that one of my favorite menu items was terrible. The steak tacos meat was so grizzly that I couldn't eat half of it. I informed my server and she kinda laughed at me since I did eat all I could so...More

My daughter has outgrown the kids menu, but they used to have a kids menu AND give the kids an etch-a-sketch. She loved it. I have no doubt but that they will do wonders for your kids when you go.
