Being from the south, I'm a sucker for a good brisket. Meat was tender and sauce had a good flavor. Good corn bread, too. Service was excellent! Made the experience even better.

Very fairly priced with huge portions. The brisket was perfect. I also enjoyed the pulled pork and ribs. The chicken wings were not too good. The corn and Mac and cheese were pretty decent too. Fun restaurant. Very friendly staff. I will be back.
