They don't honor reservations from here. So I put my name on their paper list. And they never even called. Guess they don't like business

Customer service is horrible and they have no leadership at this location. The employees are all on their own to try and figure things out.

Everything was great,however the advertised vetrans two meat deal was NOT. A pulled pork sandwich is what the two vetrans got when we got there. They were both looking forward to the two meat deal. We had five people in our group. The small print at the bottom of the ad on the internet was just that small. Ypu should put it in bigger letters and some where closer to the actual ad. We probably would have spent more on our other meals but felt like we should order smaller meals too.

We were staying at a local hotel prior to our return to FL and were looking for a restaurant close by. The food was served with generous portions. I rate the BBQ as one of the better ones I have eaten.

We came for my husband's birthday. While they don't seem to utilize their OpenTable reservations much, they sat us quickly and we were able to eat quickly as well. The food was very good, and my husband was very happy as he loves Pulled-pork of any variety. However, I feel that our server could have been a little more attentive, especially how empty the restaurant was. We never had our drinks refilled, and never checked on us throughout our meal. Overall, we had a good experience and will be back again.

Open table saves the night again. People on the wait list at the restaurant were being told an hour. I had two hungry kids and we were seated very quickly.
