This is by far the best BBQ I've ever had. The rib sammich, Some cold beer and fried oreo will bring smiles to everyone. Love the daily specials as well.

Pimento cheese sandwich with hand cut fries for late supper...watermelon & feta salad was refreshing. Table mates bragged on smoked wings...something else to try on next visit. Another must stop when on SSI.

This was the BEST BBQ that I have ever had. The shredded pork was tender, smoked and almost melted in your mouth. 4 different BBQ sauces made it perfect for all of us. I blended the original with the hot sauce for the perfect blend....More
