Picked up lunch, service friendly and quick. Hubby's Pulled pork was good. I had a shrimp salad...very bland, and missed that nice sweet local shrimp taste.

We were looking for a lunch that was not just a burger. Loved the pulled pork and pimento cheese. Never combined those two before but it was great. Reasonable prices.

This is a hidden gem! They don't advertise, instead they trust word of mouth to speak for them. That's my kind of place. The bbq is very good and they are not afraid to pile the sandwiches with meat. You will not leave hungry! This a very friendly, comfortable place to eat

Best pulled pork sandwich ever! My only recommendation to this business would be to add the mist fans all of the other restaurants in the area have. Even though it was uncomfortably hot I still have to give 5 stars because the food was so good.

Food was great! Cramped seating inside but too hot to sit outside. Will definitely come back next time I am in town.

Stopped in here by chance because the place we planned on was closed Monday's. Really happy we did. Courtyard seating was really pleasant. BBQ and pimento cheese sandwiches were delicious. Even had a few vegetarian/vegan sandwich items that my wife enjoyed. Counter service was fast and friendly. Will definitely be back!!

My family and I ordered a slab of ribs to go. They were boxed and ready to go at the time I requested for pickup, as usual. The ribs were excellent! This is why we return time and time again. Thanks Happy Tomato!!
