Rated 4 out of 5Â by SDStew Good grill for the money.
I have had this grill for a little over a year now. I have used it quite frequently over the last year, enough to go through multiple propane tanks. It has always been uncovered outside and I think that it has held up very well over the year.
The only problem with it is the ignition switch broke the second time I used it. I tried to fix it but only damaged it worse. Not a big deal though as all I did was went out and bought a grill lighter for a couple of dollars and it lights up fine every time.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by BigC Good beginner grill
Nothing fancy, but gets the job done. Good for grilling food for a few people. One side gets hotter than the other. Side burner could be stronger. Tried to boil water for rice, after 10 minutes, water was only at 170. Using a smaller pan and placing pot directly on burner instead of supplied rack worked, but inconvenient. Not hard to assemble, took about two hours. You get what you pay for, decent grill if on a budget.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by amazonhippie Pretty good grill
For some, assembly might be a nightmare. For me, it was a fun project. The instructions aren't the best, but they're pretty good. You just REALLY have to pay close attention to the details. Don't skip ahead at all. It took me about 3 hours, but I can definitely see why so many people complain about the assembly.
Some of the structural pieces are a little weak. It's kind of rickety, but not terrible. I foresee having to tighten up screws every year or so.
As far as its grilling abilities, it's great! It's very consistent.
I recommend installing a thermometer on the lid.
Overall, it's definitely worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cesar Great value
It took a while to put the pieces together but once it was up it looked great. It's a medium-sized grill that's great for small patios. The cooking space is great, though the heat seemed to be uneven. I was able to place around 8-10 hamburger patties along with hot dogs and carne asada and placing them strategically on the grill resulted in perfection. There is also a top great for toasting bread or tortillas. The side burner helped to cook up the shrimp before slapping them on the grill.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by HomeBurgher OK for the price but not very durable
Bought this BBQ about two years ago but now have to buy a new grill. The part that's between the open flame and the grill has completely deteriorated; the metal is flaking and falling off in chunks. Since that's what protects the food from the open flame, we've got a limited area to cook, trying to avoid the holes, otherwise your food gets scorched. On the inside of the lid the paint is peeling and flaking off. We kept it covered so not sure why it's deteriorating so much.
Pros: Was very glad to have a gas BBQ and it seemed like a good price. The metal grate (where you put the food) is in perfect shape, no rust or deterioration. And hey, it is an inexpensive grill; we were new to gas grilling and weren't sure if we would use it very often.
Cons: Extremely difficult to assemble, try to get the store to do it for you. Auto-ignition stopped working after about a month. Even when it was new, the heat was very uneven--very hot in the middle, and very cool towards the edge. We could only use about the middle 1/3 of the grate. Also, no propane gauge; easy to run out of propane a couple of times in the middle of cooking.
