Excellent real BBQ and the desserts are amazing. Nice, casual, down home atmosphere. Excellent service and the collard greens are a must. The ribs will knock your socks off.

My date and I always enjoy Felix's. The place offer great food and good prices. The fried chicken and pulled pork is delicious. The sides and desserts will have you coming back too. Don't forget the sweet tea and southern comfort. We love this place.

Lots of good food for a birthday lunch. The service was quick, and the fried catfish was delicious. I Loved the music playing in the back ground.
