I go by often to get the chili dogs with cole slaw. Best hot dog sauce that Ive found in Atlanta area. If you like a good hot dog with great hot dog sauce, this is the place.

They call their dogs Yellow Jackets! They are awesome! I get mine with Chili, slaw, cheese and whatever else they offer. this is a little place with a big heart. If you haven't been give it a try. They do a lot for charities. Plus the next the a Harley dealer, so you can pick a bike to ride home... More

Went there for lunch today, the barbecue is good, portions are good and the atmosphere is pleasant unless you dine at the same time as a family with small children and parents who have no business being parents. Prices are reasonable. Would recommend it.

I always get excited when I have the opportunity to have lunch here they say all they're good is good but I always end up getting two hotdogs all the way chilly cheese slaw mayo mustard and ketchup with an order of onion rings. Oh the fresh made pies here are delicious.

We had their Chili dogs with potato tots. Their chili dogs are the best tasting in this area. Potato tots just average tasting. We would recommend this restaurant.

I ordered a large bbq sandwich and a small bowl of bbq beans. It was nothing to get excited about, just a decent meal. The place was as clean as one would expect, and the service was friendly and not lacking. Even though I have had better bbq at many places, I would return.

The only good thing I can say about this place was, at least they were open when my first two choices had closed.
