“Very good food, nice restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Don't let the line deter you from grabbing a menu and looking it over while the fantastic aromas waft around you.
There is a good selection here - hefty chicken wings, moist 1/4 chicken and delicious brisket. The sides are quite appealing especially the green beans and the mac 'n' cheese. They do have a large cooler with old time drinks - Root Beers and Moxie (what a find) and also beverages at the end of the line after you pay.
Sometimes it's difficult to find a table and you may have to sit across from each other at a long table if a booth is not available. One suggestion would be to have a "senior" section - both times we were there I noticed it was hard for elderly patrons to get up to the higher seats at the bar-height tables.
We'll be going back.
PS: There is plenty of parking and they have take-out window. There is seating outside - perfect for cooler weather.
