When this restaurant first opened, the food was excellent. However, over the years the quality has declined.

Love the food! Meat is tender and juicy. Sauces are delicious. Choices are good and atmosphere is quaint.

Wings are great and service is just good ol' down home southern hospitality. They have a few items not on the menu, BBQ Tacos and nachos and the tacos area awesome. Brunsick stew is runny, more like soup, but not bad. The selection of sauces is good and I usually eat here once a week

After many great reviews of this place we ordered take out. The pull pork was dry. I believe this is not norm since a few pieces were juicy and tender. It seemed to me they put the old dry in for take out and maybe leave the good for dine in. How often do you call back to complain.

We visited this restaurant for the first time last weekend. The BBQ was not bad but it was not outstanding either. I can find BBQ just as good or better closer to my home. The staff was great and provided great service.
