    We hadn't been to this location for several years, despite living very close. We used to go all the time year ago and we don't know why we stopped going!?! We went with our 2 teens recently and everyone's food was not only delicious and hot, the price point was awesome for our family of four. Those fried green tomatoes- oh my goodness, SO good! I don't remember the young man's name that waited on us, but he was very kind, attentive, and provided great service! We'll be back soon!

    My husband had the burger and said it was delicious. I had the breaded tenderloin, and it was huge and delicious! If your kid loves mini corn dogs, mine said they were very good. Overall, we were very happy with the service, the atmosphere and the food! We would definitely recommend it.

    Didn’t even end up eating there. The booth we were seated in was filthy with seemingly months and months worth of dust, dirt, dead bugs and spider webs on the window ledge next to us. I can only imagine what the kitchen looks like …

    Wow, our server (Troy A.) was amazing! He was attentive, accurate, and prompt. Troy kept orders precisely in mind, with no mistakes. Each course arrived promptly, in a way that never felt rushed nor delayed. Big thanks also to the kitchen staff, who prepared our food so well. Every item was fresh, tasty, and at the best temperature. Yummy!

    Went for devour Indy. The green beans were very bad. The other food was ok. The decor was very old and out of date. Gives the impression it is not clean. It was an ok experience but most likely will not be back.

    Food was all cold except my husband's chicken. Seems everyone's food sat waiting on his ckn because they messed up. He ordered a combo and was told he could sub ckn for ribs for a few $ upcharge. We paid an extra $12.50 on top of the combo price. Also my mom didn't receive all of her meal

    We were in a hurry to pick a place near the airport, that was convenient for arriving friends. Big Mistake! This was the darkest, dirtiest, restaurant I've visited in a long time. Way overdue for a makeover, but absolutely filthy - floors, seats, restrooms - you name it. The staff, bless them, was tremendous, to the point that I wanted to ask them why they didn't find better jobs. The food was marginal from many aspects.

    Our server was amazing. We were seated to the left of the door in area in front of bar. The host/busser was killing it. Both of them are seasoned veterans and it shows. Just loved this place. Will be back.
