This place is legit. Don't let the store front hide this gem. Food is always good when sitting down. They delivered a full catered spread to our house that was also excellent.

Only do take out but the food is high quality and very authentic. The ribs are dry (without sauce) but moist and tender. The brisket is excellent and the mac and cheese side dish is delish.
