Love the BBQ sauce

Just stop for lunch here, the Spicy BBQ sauce was so good that I bought one home. I liked the place, the waitress was so friendly.

Sweet Tea was amazing and refilled without being asked. Pulled pork was perfect served with coleslaw. Additionally, I had Bread pudding for dessert and it was spot on!

Saw the restaurant while visiting historic Lynchburg and thought I would try it. The staff were very helpful, the pulled pork sandwich was tasty and the portion sizes were perfect.

We stopped to eat and no room in restaurant or porch but scored a table out on deck. Servers took drink order and served drinks then we waited and waited and waited... Yes, the whole place emptied out and we waited. Food just average, I wouldn't bother to wait again. I had ribs with two sides, not worth mentioning.

This was a return trip from a few years back. I was looking forward to it because of the red beans and rice. Originally, they used to make it with some of the pulled pork in the beans which was just exceptional. However it appears that they have changed that and are now using polish sausage in the beans.

Stopped here for a hotdog and BBQ ribs meal - really nice, welcoming waitress and lovely food. Good to stop by when you leave the JD distillery!
