I had the pleasure to recently eat a big D's barbecue. I tried the pork plate with collar greens, hush puppies, and coleslaw. The food was outstanding and serve quickly. Please note this is not a full-service restaurant.

Unsurpassed bar-b-q worth the drive. Sides of slaw, beans, and hush puppies put our lunch over the top. Kudos to Chef Simon and his all-star crew!
