The rolls are super, the tri-tip out of this world. The beans are Ok but the chicken is mealy and way over cooked. Salad bar is a 6 out of 10, and the portions are on the large side. Coleslaw is better than KFC but not up to that of a good eatery. It's on par with the stuff at Ralph's Deli. For large groups and catering this is a good deal. As an idividual BBQ joint, it's more like fast food. Children will love it and that is a tip off. Good BBQ is spicy, unique and regional. This is designed for mass appeal and as such, aims for the middle of the road; which I maight add, it hits dead center. As to the noise factor, if you want to converse with friends at the table be prepared for a shouting match. I've been to Bavarian Bier Halls that were more intimate.
Pros: great tri-tip, excellent catering
Cons: Chicken is mealy and way over done, servie is lack-luster, the ambiance is noisy
