The place is not fancy but you don't have to be fancy if you are delicious. The service is fast, friendly and affordable. Family friendly.

BBQ was pretty good. The meats were tasty. Apps were inexpensive. Sides were OK. We will probably go back again when visiting our daughter in college.

Probably one of the best steaks in town. Nice atmosphere. Try the pigskins and ask for the Carolina sauce. Good stuff.

If you love bbq then this is a must. Small town good ol bbq for a decent price. I usually get the Cuban sandwich and a choice of a side. Not fast food but a great sit down restaurant to get your eating on! Great friendly staff as well.

I love the food here. They have lunch specials and specials of the week. There was a sign in the restaurant stating that if they dont have a meat that you want bbq'd if you requested it, they would make it. I thought that was pretty cool.

Great service, good food, low prices. What more can you want? My husband ordered a Cuban sandwich and I got smoked pork chops. Both orders were wonderful. Cheesy potatoes and Coke slaw were better than average.

Thank Nada H
