I had a pork bar-b-q sandwich and collard greens. Both were very tasty and were served by a talkative young man. It was around 5 so the place was quiet although people were starting to arrive.

The food is always so good from the bar b que, which is the best around, to the salads, to the mac and cheese and slaw and fries. My kids also say their chicken fingers are the best!

Food was good but service was not. Order was incorrect, server knew it & brought it to the table anyway. Had to request condiments multiple times. Waited so long for the check thought it was going to be free then had to wait for server to run my card. Went to the bar for help & could not pay there... More

Should I say more? The barbecue is fantastic, so are the cheese buscuits, but I don't leave, without having a piece of lemon pie!

I love to drive thru and pick up their Southern Chopped Salad with smoked chicken. This has also been a family favorite for years. From BBQ to burgers to salads they have a great menu.

We stopped here to watch Alabama/Washington game because felt they wouldn't be near as busy as a sports bar. We were able to get a couple bar stools and grab a beer. They were extremely busy with carry out orders. After they slowed down a bit we ordered some smoked wings and ribs. Very delicious flavor on both. I had... More

My wife and I were on our way home and driving through Birmingham where we have family and decided to get food to go here. We called about 30 minutes ahead of time and the food was ready when we arrived. The order was correct, which is always nice for a to-go order and the food was great. My only... More
