The first time I came, I had a coupon that I took full advantage of and basically ordered everything on the menu. I ended up stuffed and happy and with lots of leftovers. The food here is very good. So good in fact, that my husband and I had our wedding reception here with a packed lunchtime buffet. If this means anything, our friends still talk about the food at our wedding. I know I'm supposed to say "come here for the meat" (which you should), but I'll also say "come here for the sides" (the curried succotash is my favorite). 


I cant get enough of this place. Go all out and get a platter, you can box up what you cant eat after! Portions are big here so pace yourself. The brisket is definitely worth a try too. If you go during peak times, you might experience a wait, this place is pretty popular and for good reason.
