Good honkitonk vibe with a modern twist. Food is so good you could eat it till you get sick. I feel like it could be a tiny bit cheaper but over all a great place to bring friend's or family

I loved the Chicken, but my favorite was the Chicken Livers, I know most people don't like Liver, but it was awesome, if you love livers, a must, they melt in your mouth.
