...but the sides are luke warm and vairly stiff. I've been there twice now and that seems to be the norm, pre-cooked sides that are not heated well prior to serving.

we went in with a groupon good for 26.00 i paid 13.00 good for two meats and 1 side the way they have it set up you have a choice of chicken wings, fish or pork chops which only comes up to less than 20.00 (for your 2 meats) and we had a side of fries. it took them close to an hour to fix our meal and we were the only ones in there. we had an appointment and asked if we could please get it to go because they had taken so long they refused so i had to leave to get my son to the appointment and my husband sat there and ate alone. the place was dark and the ceiling was dripping all over the floor. never again will be go there.

It seemed the potion sizes were a bit too small for $9.75. Maybe they are serving reduced sizes for Groupon users.
