The pricing was really fair in my opinion. The service was very nice and very helpful. Typical southern friendly people! If... More

We ate lunch here after a tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery! We had the pulled pork plate with two sides. Service was very good, Food was good. This is a small town BBQ café, you sit at long tables, food is served on Styrofoam plates, with paper napkins. You seat yourself, "sit wherever you like"!
