Our mission? Great people helping other great people totally have a blast while enjoying amazing food. Wow, that was a mouthful. But can you blame us? We’re a restaurant. One that specializes in delicious food and great times. Our goal is to make you laugh. And depending on your hot sauce tolerance, cry.

In all seriousness, we take real pride in our food. Try our Cluckin’ Fresh Chicken Fingers, made and seasoned with fresh, never frozen chicken tenders. This isn’t run-of-the-mill pub grub. Our Band of Chefs are influenced by a wide variety of tastes and have travelled across the globe to gain inspiration.

But outside of the kitchen, we find it hard to take ourselves seriously. We have an Elvis booth. For no particular reason. Folks, that really does say it all. We’re sports fanatics, music nuts and love a good joke. If you’re into at least one of those things, we should hang out.

The food was great, the service was great, I only wish that their patio tables were bigger. 4 people with a water and a drink, we could barely fit our dinner plates on the table as well.

We weren’t given menus untill 30 minutes into us sitting down, we had to ask for a drink menu, drinks took a long time to come out and it was pretty much empty in the restaurant, my food and my wife’s food came out cold…just not a great experience.

Mexican bowl is exceptional.
Music is too loud and I think it exceeds COVID restrictions.

Everything was fine except for getting into the restaurant. There was a bunch of confusion as there were many people waiting. Some for takeout, some as a walk in and some had reservations. A little more organization at the host station would make things run smoother. Perhaps 3 separate lines and maybe have the host go outside to keep confusion to a minimum.

Not the best experience but they were extremely busy so it wasn’t too surprising that the service was less than standard.

Food was great-bit of confusion over chicken fingers with fries plus a side salad. Salad came but no fries. Mentioned it to the server that brought our food, never saw the fries. Gummy bear margarita had a very watered down shot of tequila...I mean I doubt there was a shot of alcohol in that drink. I’d go back-super fast service getting our food and drinks. Kitchen staff just needs to pay attention to the order and owner needs to stop watering down the drinks for more profit.

Servers are friendly and food quality is great, however, the service speed from the bar is way too slow. Also, when OpenTable asked for the occasions of the reservation, the restaurant didn’t offer anything special or have any perks for a Birthday dinner.

Waiter took awhile to get to the table to take order but was very ftiendly.

Shrimp bowl was very large and leftovers were enough for a snack for 2 people. Garlic, jalapeno mashed potatoes were a bit too spicy for me.

My husband really enjoyed his burger.
I ordered the chicken quesadilla, it was ok - not the best but not terrible.
We ordered the kids stir fry for our toddler and it was the last to arrive - a little annoying because anyone with children knows they’ll want to eat as soon as food arrives. Her dish was a little bit spicy for a toddler and I wish they’d warned me when I was ordering it for her I don’t recall the menu stating it would be a bit spicy. (Let me be clear, it was spicy for a 2 year old not spicy in general.... but the server could have mentioned this)

We asked for a refill on our drinks and they took quite a long time to arrive. I also asked for a to go box for our left overs and we never got one, and couldn’t get the attention of the server to get one.

Overall I was pretty underwhelmed. It was noisy and the service was slow. But the food was pretty good and brought the rating up.

One server can to tske our drink order but didnt tell our table assigned server so we were asked again what we wanted. It took awhile for the drinks to arrive and for the table server to take our food order. When the food arrives they didn't bring the cutlery and we had a very hard time to get someone to bring us some utensils.

We were rush when they brought they billed and as soon as we were paid we were expected to leave the table.
