We’ve been here before and it’s a great experience for BBQ. I’d say it’s a little more expensive than what you might see, but it’s totally worth it.

food was incredible, we arrived late so the waiter was also helping clean the unoccupied booths, unfortunately there were times where it seemed he was more concerned with cleaning rather than assisting us, but he was very friendly and had no issues when we asked him for help. overall 5 stars

Not a good experience at all! We waited nearly 15 minutes to be greeted my our server. We ordered all at once and did the package for 3 guests. Our grill died several times and instead of moving us to a new open table to get us cooking our food again, server tried to fix our grill, which kept going out. This delayed us eating for nearly 20 minutes. when we finally moved tables to begin cooking our raw again, we asked the waitress where the other items were we ordered, she let us know the kitchen was out of all those items and kitchen was closed and couldn’t make the items. Reservation was well before closing time and our server failed to ring in our full order at the time we ordered obviously. poor communication from the waitress and kitchen, and no manager even approached our table to check on us after the grill malfunction. We will not be coming back here.

My first time doing this style of BBQ. It was delicious! My girlfriend and I both got the $40 all you can eat, and it was worth the money. The waiter we had was also very nice. Service was fast. Definitely recommend!

Food was amazing. Wait staff was amazing. Restaurant interior overall was a little tired. Tables, booths, and general decor need TLC or replacement. Lights were too bright. Music was 90s pop/rock and it didn’t go with the overall aesthetic.

We ordered all you can eat option, but the waitress forgot what we ordered several times. She came back to ask if our orders have arrived. So that we waited longer time for the food. But she is nice and apologize for the delay

Food was good. We chose the $40/person so we got plenty of food. Service was slow and it didn’t feel like the cleanest place. Wish we could have ate outside.

The food was decent but our grill kept turning off, to the point we needed assistance every five minutes and had five different waitresses come by to try to fix it. As a result, it took us a while to complete our meal, since we had a group.

Love this place came for Mother's day dinner. Everything was great (except the rice) usually don't have a problem. Service was slow at first then things got better. There is and option for pretty much everyone but if your a meat lover they have great choices of meat and the quality is great.

There were two of us who went for the all you can eat. We had a total of 90 mins to dine. The waitresses for our table were very friendly and provided our table with much attention. We were never waiting on them as they were constantly checking in to place our next round of food or drink orders. We left very full and satisfied.
