I love the Brunswick Stew. They have great tasting chicken tenders. Their busiest time is Sundays around noon. They are usually packed. We go there often for lunch and dinner

I love the sweet tea here. I've never had it as sweet as it is here. I really enjoyed their pulled pork, it has a great flavor. The potato salad and coleslaw were good and tasty also. I really enjoy this place for lunch..

I purchased the sandwich combo for 6.99 which came with more fries than the paper pouch could hold (laid out on paper on purpose) and a medium size drink. A great bargain for the amount of food received. My meal was kindly brought to my table without me having to... More
