If you leave here hungry, it's your own fault. Great friendly staff and a huge sandwich. We got the sweet BBQ sauce with our sandwiches. Lean, tasty and just right.

BBQ with a variety of sauces to try. Creamy pimento cheese (that could use a little more zip - almost too creamy). Nice chunky style chicken salad. Popular with the locals,

The owners and staff/family were very friendly and helpful and our pulled pork sandwiches came right away during a busy lunch. The wait staff recommended a blend of barbecue sauces. There were 3 sauces to mix and match: delicious. Don't forget their homemade cookies--they were great, too. The cafe also has a variety of pork selections for takeout as well;... More
