This is a great place to do the drive through. The neighborhood isn't great, but you can stay in your car. Even if you get out it is well lit and on a heavily traveled road. Just be aware of your surroundings when you leave...More

Generally get the ribs, but have tried the pulled pork. Both are excellent. Just down the street from Long's Bakery where you can get desert.

Great ribs! I like them sweet/mild (I know, I'm a sissy). You get plenty of meat as well as sauce. If you think you'll have room, add a piece of sugar cream pie to your order. Heaven!
