Their baked beans are awesome. Like their BBQ but it does taste a little vinegary to me. I prefer mayo based coleslaw but if you like vinegar based then you will like theirs. Meat is tender, never fatty.

Walked in and ordered the turkey lunch box. Includes a bbq turkey sandwich, potato salad, baked beans, drink and cookie! Around $7! Ordered and received in 6 minutes! Food was delicious. Don’t forget to order sauce.

Whitt's has got the perfect sauce with the pork family packs. Love the vinegar base. Gives the flavor just the kick we like without drowning a sandwich in rib sauce which we must do with other bbq places.
