Rated 4 out of 5 by The dinner and the service was great! We went before the dinner rush and found out there was a magic and comedy show presented Friday-Sunday. We would love to go back and see the show and we never would have known about if it hadn't been for! Aug 11, 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by We went for lunch on Sunday and felt a little strange because we were the only ones there, but the food was good and the service was great. We like the cheesy tiki vibe, but the pop music was a little annoying. Jul 21, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Service was slow; food was mediocre. Not much business while we were there. And. . .they didn't have any ice cream even though it was on the menu. Jul 20, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by This is a rib place. I should not have ordered a steak. The steak was rather tasteless and bland. Also, it was covered with onions and peppers. I guess I was not expecting that. The vegetables that accompanied the steak were over=cooked and mushy. Also, we went on a Monday, and they sat us in the Bar instead of the actual restaurant. Since neither of us drink, it was a very strange place to be for a "nice" dinner date. Jul 8, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by First the good feedback-The ribs were cocked to perfection I have had ribs that equaled them but none that surpassed them.The quantity was great. More that you will get at Lucille's and for a cheaper price I believe. Would rate the ribs as excellent if not for the sauce.The Negatives -The Sauce was terrible, it tasted watered down and vinegary (we asked for some on the side). Thankfully it didn't stick to the ribs we were able to put our own sauce on at home (we had lots of leftovers.When we told the waiter about the sauce we were told that it was a proprietary sauce, had been used for many years and wouldn't likely be changed. We were not offered a different choice of sauce or anything.The cornbread was a brick, not dry, just dense and not sweet at all.The "Sunday". The ice cream was of a cheap variety and worse, was melting excessively in the desert bowl. It was 2 or 3 scoops of vanilla with fudge topping drizzled over it, and 2 cherries, that's it. The scoops were so soft the consistency was more like whipped cream than ice cream.Also the waiter seemed irritated that we were requesting things like...Utensils and condiments. I never had to ask for utensils at a restaurant before. The waiter gave us our drinks and then the cornbread and could have provided utensils either of these times. Jul 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by If you like fruity cocktails you will like this place. They make pitchers of huge drinks. Joshua is a nice guy and if you order the feast for two you will have tons of food. Jul 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great BBQ; we'll have lunch and dinner two additional days on these huge plates of ribs, house salad, baked potato... Jun 29, 2014
