The Iowa hot chicken wasn't hot but very tasty and plenty. Service was also great the server worked diligently to take care of her tables. She also makes a great Arnold Palmer sweet tea
Came here for the first time Saturday evening. Had Voodoo shrimp appetizer and Nashville hot chicken entree. Some of the best chicken I've ever had and the shrimp was delicious.
The food is always good here, great location! Pizza night is delicious as well!! If the weather isn't bad the patio is pretty good size to meet the girls for drinks after work!
My family of 4 came here after visiting a nearby pumpkin patch. I had the Nashville chicken strips with a side of mac and cheese. It was amazing, best chicken I've ever had, and I love chicken so I eat it often. My wife's wings were excellent too! The service was also top notch. The drinks were good as well. I couldn't possibly ask for more!
Finally made it out to this place. Damn, the food was great! I tried the deep fried pickles, which was a good size portion. Then the broasted chicken as well as the chicken and waffles. Everything came out hot and fresh with tons of flavor...
