Was here for lunch about 2 weeks ago. It felt like they just opened, the service was very slow. Took almost 45min to get our food, grilled ch. While the food was good, the order was wrong. The MGR was great & took off the food that was not correct. I will try it 1 more time. I suggest getting younger waiters who can move fast.
Food & service marginal. Ordered ribs and burgers. Ribs were tough (bad qaulity of meat) &/or under cook. Didn't fall off of the bone. Flavor was okay, but overly smokey, disappointment - wouldn't order again. Burger was prepared to order, but the bun it was presented on was dry and old. It seemed like the b-team was working that Thursday evening. As for service, it was lack luster. They weren't on top of things that evening and had to request beverage service numerous times before it would arrive. The four of us will probably not go back to the resturant.
