Gave the restaurant a few months and it added to its menu and now includes beer wine and liquor. I'm impressed once again, so on that note I would recommend the smokehouse chef salad. I look forward to trying their twist on lasagna that uses...More

It was almost empty with only 2 other tables so we were worried but it was without merit. Our server was prompt & courteous; even offered a cup to go for our beverages; awesome! My boyfriend got the lasagna and it was outstanding; highly recommended...More

The waitress seemed grumpy and oozed false sincerity. The food was slapped down on the table and was not good in anyway. The meat was dry, the slaw was not interesting and the beans are full of sugar. The sauce is extremely heavy on the...More

We had heard this was good, and we went just as they were closing, so we were lucky to get in. The ribs were average, and fatty, and the onion rings greasy. I would suggest to not fall into the romance of CO BBQ here,...More

After a long day at Mesa Verde we stopped in at 5:15. First clue should have been only two cars in the parking lot during the dinner hour. The 6th piece of chicken in the wing order was raw and bloody. They tried explaining it...More
