“CASH ONLY!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Food was good and so was the service. We liked all except the undercooked cobbler. We were limited to what we could order because of the cash only requirement but that is the house rule and their loss.

“Fat and full from Hickory Hollow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

After a full day of shopping we debated on a place for dinner.. We decided to eat at the first place we came to! As a joke I pulled into their parking lot (there was a large pig statue missing its head.. Not the most inviting) we laughed but decided to stay. We parked by nellie the goat and passed a peacock on the way in. the door warned us if we were in a hurry or wanted to pay with a cc or check then we should go somewhere else.. At this point we were already committed!! Inside was extremely mom&pop seated right away, helped quickly, ordered meals with a pig next to them.. "favorites" sides.. Must try the tater salad and the roasted corn and peppers, okra, yam pattys.. Pork shank and carolina pulled pork!! All soooooo delicious!! Finished with a fresh from the oven cherry cobbler a la mode!! Going back as soon and often as possible! Must try!!

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

Found this restaurant while looking at trip advisor reviews and I'm glad I did! The ribs were excellent. I wanted to get them to go so was ordering and she said "what would you like for your two sides"? I said what do you have? She said we have over 20 sides!!! I had corn on the cob and augratin potatoes. The location doesn't look like much on the outside but is very cute on the inside. The food was excellent. The staff was very nice. We will return!!

“BBQ and more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Alittle hard to get to but worth the trip. The ribs fell off the bone and I always love good okra. The after dinner view is a hoot with the dogs, rabbit, goat & peacock to entertain you.
