4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I work near this restaurant but for some reason I'd never stopped in before yesterday. I'll definitely be returning! I had the catfish lunch and the fish was amazing. At first I was afraid from the color that it would be too done but it was perfect - light and flavorful. I had it with fries and green beans. The... More

Real BBQ. Ribs are very tasty, even without sauce. Meaty and not greasy. Baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon butter are memorable. Baked beans very flavorful. Staff is delightful.

My husband and I ate there last month on a trip to Orlando/Kissimmee to visit family. We had been there before for their great breakfast, but this time tried it for dinner. We loved it! Great portions, excellent chicken and beef, and such nice hospitable service. We always try to stop in for a meal on each trip down. Unfortunately,... More

We read a few reports on trip advisor to find a local bbq that wasn't part of a big chain. Right from the get go you can see the place is all about the food. The food was fantastic, well prepared and presented. I never thought I would eat food that would leave me speechless so if you want a... More

A huge platter of bbq'd ribs, chicken, beef, ham, coleslaw, fries, baked potato, beans, corn on the cob, garlic bread was $23 which was enough for the two of us.. Definitely give it a try. The decor is not... More

The eggs were done just right scrambled light, the sausage links were average, the rye toast done good and the home fries crispy combined with a full coffee cup every minute and a waitress who was personal and prompt.

OK, I'm from Georgia and I judge BBQ against the BBQ I was raised on. I prefer the Georgia style BBQ Sauce, but this is pretty good. The meat is tender, coleslaw is a little to sweet for my preferences, but if that is your style, maybe. The baked beans are good. The feast for two has ribs, beef, pork,... More
