This is a chain but I think it offer some great value.

Free bucket of peanuts which is quite tasty and you can throw away the shells on the floor which makes the place looked interesting like a barn sort of.

Dinner rolls were soft, yeasty and brushed with butter on the top for added flavor. Great cinnamon butter. This is really good and worth the admission by itself.

Each dinner comes with not one but TWO free sides. The caesar salad is one of the best I had tasted. Great dressing and everything is just perfect. Decent sweet potatoes and baked potatoes. I made a mistake getting the vegetables. It came with large cauliflowers, brocollis, etc that were just simply boiled.

The meats: ordered the 20 oz ribeye for only like $22 which were decent (nothing spectacular). The meat were not the most tender. I ordered medium but was probably mistakenly medium well and returned it the kitchen. Otherwise very decent. Also got the onion and mushroom options which was very good. We also got a combo plate with a sirloin and chicken which both were done competently but agaon nothing spectacular.

In the past I ordered their appetizer combo which was outstanding. So, this place is well worth it for all the accesories but the meat itself is just allright. The atmosphere and service is also great here.

In the future, if just 2 of us dining, we will just order the appetizer and get a nice big ribeye or primerib plate with caesar salad and maybe a baked potatoes. We just split our meals.

Also it is important to make phone reservation one hour ahead of time and make sure to remember the name of the person. They actually forgot to write my name down. Otherwise you might have to wait 1 hour.
