Good place to go over for lunch, that is if you can find parking. Wait staff do their best and it is not unusual to see your meals arriving after some explainable delay. We tried their favorite choice which was the chicken BBQ plate. I...More

Good flavor on smoked brisket sandwiches, happy to see the hogwash. The bread was too thin for the thick meat content and fell apart quickly. Potato salad good flavor but a bit watery.

We are a very casual BBQ "joint" in the traditional sense. The focus is on the food. Slow smoked meats, homemade sides, rubs, sauces and desserts. Friendly service, at home feel. Excellent beer and wine lists (no kidding). Genuine Southern BBQ. Everything made in-house. Our mission is your delight. We Cater too! 25 to 5000 people.
