Food was not that great as compared to the price. Service was awful!! They only had one person taking orders, filling orders and settling the bill. I've told a lot of people not to bother going and we won't be going back either.

I cant complain about the food, its down right good. This place has seen its share of owners and skeletons that have been exposed, and started charging for the little extras, Ex. extra dressing for salad. But as I said the food is unchanged, its still finger licken good!

The website states they are open on Wed at 4:30 - we drove up there on a Wed to find a handwritten sign on the door saying they are closed on Mon, Tues & Wed. Need to update their website.

Ribs were more like pulled pork. The bones just fell out, so you had to eat with a fork. Was not a full rack, for $21.00 one would expect a full rack. Service was sub-par. 5 minutes after we were served, waitress finally came back to give us silverware. Never came back to refill waters.

Don't expect a fancy place, it's about a historic spot. Very good food, service and the Gold Cadillac is a must.

Great food, drinks, experience and atmosphere. Very friendly. Print Groupon before going. Cell reception extremely limited.

I love the whole dive bar vibe. However, the drink/s they are famous for no longer are what they used to be. They used to be like a milkshake consistency, now they are full of air (whipped) which also decreases the enjoyment of the texture and the volume of alcohol.
