We went to the restaurant because it's near, it newly opened and we were tired of the fast food ripoffs, the same old same olds and the overly priced restaurants with air-head waitresses. So...we went not knowing anything of them or their prior existence.
We seated ourselves, were promptly greeted and attended. The waiter was very nice. We looked at the wide selection and made our choices. I had the flat iron steak and my partner had the pulled pork platter. You choose teo sides, The only comment I have with the sides is...99% starches. The veg of the day was asparagus and corn in season....and it''s not the right season.
The corn bread was a square pc each...same as you get at the other local rip-off BBQ joint that charges you to sit in their restaurant if some no talent idiot sings.
My steak was good, my food was HOT needed to wait to cool. The pulled pork was good nice blend of flavors...not overly sour and not overly smoked like it came from a house on fire. The mac and cheese was good. The fries were fine, the potato salad was good and the cole slaw.
Now to address the comments about homecooked, if any one believes that, then I suggest you need a grip on reality. As soon as you see a delivery truck from Sysco or US Foods, you can bet the food is not 100% homemade. You need to start somewhere with cooking, and doubt it highly that any restaurant grows their own bean, harvests it and then proceeded to produce a 100% homemade product. Whether you start with a dried bean or a can of beans, our grands and moms started their signature dished with product from the grocery. Now I stand corrected their were the people with truck patches.
Now...my only complaint...the silverwear needed some attention.
