Before you read the rest of the review, I have to note that this place was only open for several Hours and it was apparent that there was still a lot of training that was in progress..
I had heard that this place was open. Several restaurants had been in this location over the past several years and I must say that they start out with good food but, the quality slowly fades away. I am reluctantly optimistic. We went in around noon on a Friday expecting there to not be much of a crowd. there really wasn’t many people there but there was a few, here is what we experienced.
Good shape. the previous tenant had done a complete remodel so much of the interior construction was nice. walls painted black and white. On the down side the carpet had trails from wear. If I was to give a suggestion, tear up the carpet and finish the carpeted areas to match the treated concrete.
Most of the seating was leftovers so there was some mix and match Booths, chairs and tables but overall they were still in good shape so I cannot blame them for being money smart. They did add in a new bar although it was posted on Facebook that they are currently not serving alcohol but hope to soon – this will be kept family friendly atmosphere like Olive Garden, Chilies, and other similar locations.
The music playing was a lot of Rock like AC/DC and such.. most of it was not bad but there was a few songs that were a bit hard for the “Family Environment”.
Service was really slow. Granted they were new and I could tell that the waitress was trying to learn everything all at once. At the time we were there it took about 30-40 min from ordering our food to be served. I would expect that this time will get faster as the cooks and waitresses get more adjusted to the processes
Food was great! Just the type that you would expect at a sports bar. filling, good size portions, not too pricey. We did notice that they do not use the standard fry sauce, it had more of a BBQ flavor to it. Onion rings were perfect and not overly oily. Fries were seasons and good to eat plain. Sand which was filling and good flavor, Nachos had plenty of toppings go keep you going ( fresh jalapenos kept the mouth on fire as well)
Chicken strips with fries – Loaded Nachos – Turkey bacon avocado sand which with onion rings and Chocolate cake and ice cream for desert.
We will go back. there was more that I wanted to try but this time without the kids to keep the bill down. I do hope that this one will take hold and stay for a while.. Hoping that the food will stay good as well.
