I was not impressed with the food and it was over priced. The customer serves was good, but our table was broke and the chairs sucked. The waitress did try and fix the table the best he could. I could have went to cookout a block down the road and get the same BBQ plate for 1/3 of the price. Not a place I would go to again.
