Honestly the BEST BBQ sauce I have ever had

Don't know what they mix in their home made BBQ sauce, but it is a heavenly mix of something. Didn't bother asking for the recipe as I suspect something that good it is TOP SECRET. Former Firefighter gone restauranteur. This family did it right. Best place to eat for 20-miles around.

This is a very nice place for a southern country buffett. The mac and cheese is great, the fat back is wonderful and whatever is on the buffett that day seems to be good. I would go back if for nothing more than the mac and cheese and sweet tea! Actually I'm in the area and going for lunch tomorrow,... More
