I believe this place is now closed. When it was open is had really good ribs and the staff was always nice. Really was a hidden gem. Maybe one day it will reopen.

Def and stop by and grab, the location is very small. The food is really good though, Solid BBQ and the Burgoo is different (and good) from the other 2 places in town. Def worth checking out!

This little hole in the wall does not have indoor seating, it's drive through / carry out only. But the food we got was very good. Brisket sandwiches. Will go back and try something else. Do not fear the building or the location.

Not as good as Moonlite, Old Hickey or Ole South. It wasn't totally horrible. But my husband makes excellent bbq so it's hard to not compare all to his. The guy taking our order was nice but the guy (I'm assuming was the owner) should...More
