We had a Groupon, so were wondering how our treatment would be. No worries, we were served promptly and shared a huge combo plate of chicken and ribs, slaw, fries and cornbread. We enjoyed our meal and will go back.

We always provide great food and service! This would never change because you happen to have a Groupon - this usually provides us an opportunity for a new customer who we hope will return time and time again. Thanks for the visit!

Prices are good but food is average. I don't like eating food out of a plastic basket. We were at the downtown location. You can take the kids and the entire family if you want. Atmosphere is average.
