Always has great food. The service is usually quick and the servers are well informed of the menu choices. Beer is cold and the prices for everything makes this place good value for your money.

The staff was friendly and efficient. Food is ok - nothing special. Chicken soup had very little taste, pork cuban was good, dessert shots aren't worth the money - just cake in a tiny glass. The staff is the best part of this restaurant!

Nice BBQ joint, some of the best riibs around. Walking distance to the Hilton. They also now have some great salads and burgers, nice bar area with many beers on tap.
