This restaurant was recommended to us by my Sister. We drove into town on Sunday only to find they were closed...luckily we're in town until Tuesday. We went back the next day for dinner. Not as expected but not disappointed with the cafeteria style approach....More

Seriously the best barbecue I've ever eaten, I've visited different locations and all are wonderful. Had their pulled pork and greens and took the chocolate cake home. You will not be disappointed if your hungry for true great southern food.

A group of 20 went to this restaurant for a dinner then go to a movie. Food was good but not much of it. Sides were small and I had 🍟 that were warm at best.

The ribs were the best I have ever eaten, no sauce needed. The Mac and Cheese was good but the collards too spicy for me.

My husband and I had lunch here. He had a sandwich and I had a salad. With two iced tea, nearly $30! It's good, but that's a little pricey. Good food, casual atmosphere.
