Stopped in for first time in Dawsonville for extreme driving experience. The pork sandwich was great. Nice size portions and had fries, hush puppies and baked beans. The BBQ sauce could used more spicey heat for me. I'd come back.

The ribs were great. The pork and chicken were just fair. The beans were tasteless and pasty. Hushpuppies were a nice surprise. They charged me for a piece of soggy bread!
