Every year we stop in at least once when in the area. Beef and turkey were excellent. Got there right when they opened and waited for fries to cook. They brought us an extra helping for our wait. Hand cut fries, not much you can...More

Went there for a quick bite to eat before a movie. It wasn't very quick. BBQ was good but didn't really care of the sides.

Tons of eats options all around this place but don’t go anywhere else. Fantastic food at a great price. The meat is on point, the cole slaw was excellent, and the sauce is to die for. Don’t pass it up!

I love the barbecue at this place. However, be forewarned that the interior is well-worn and a bit sticky. It could be cleaner and cooler. This eatery s quite popular with locals. We especially enjoyed the pulled pork. No complaints about food.
