Visit every time we come to LRAFB. Very limited hours and very popular but feel it is worth the wait. Friendly staff and large portions sure to please.

My wife and always enjoy the pulled pork sandwiches. You will receive a more than fair amount of food for the price. Depending on the time of day it is packed and usually stays pretty busy during business hours. This is some of the best barbeque around especially for the price.

Any thing we have tried here has been excellent. From the barbecue to the catfish to the piggy pie. You won't be disappointed.

Nice folk. Good sized portions but just average food. Fries just fair. Catfish better than my brisket, which was tasty but dried out. Certainly not bad but considering it's out of the way location I'll likely not return.

This is a nice family restaurant with outstanding southern food. BBQ, fried catfish, etc. Don't let the name fool you. This is an excellent full service restaurant for lunch or dinner.

ALL menu items are extremely worth trying . The Catfish is to die for . One of the best around. The BBQ Combo is a great deal and offers samples of two or three meat items , plus two sides. CAN NOT BEAT THIS and YOU will have leftovers. Staff is friendly and attentive. Always crowded so you know it... More
