“The BBQ is smokin' and the crabs are crackin'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

I can't testify to the crabs yet but I can vouch for the Southern Style BBQ. We stopped by after shopping Sunday evening and we're lucky enough to sample one of the "Soul Food Sunday" specials. The smothered pork chop with Collards and Mac n Cheese sides was fantastic. Served on a bed of yellow rice with generous side portions. The mac-n-cheese was done just right with a good cheesy flavor. The collards had bits of ham and tasted great. None of the bitter flavor collards can have when not properly cooked.

My wife had a 1/2 bbq chicken box with Garlic Potatoes and Cornbread muffin sides. The portions were so generous we thought they made a mistake and gave us a whole chicken! The white meat was moist and tasty and the dark meat done to perfection. All lathered in a great red bbq sauce.

One order was enough for two people but at $10 each we had enough for two days. We'll definitely be back to sample the crabs.
