All of their food is good, love their fried okra. You can dine in with a roll of paper towels on the table or take out.

My family has loved Spare Rib for years. My go to is the chopped beef sandwich. This is a no frills restaurant with a family run spirit and love for their customers. Don't forget to leave room for their delicious cobbler!

This is one of the few BBQ restaurants I have seen anywhere that has spare ribs on the menu, vice St. Louis style ribs or baby-back ribs...everything we ate was of very good quality- the pulled pork, ribs, fish, sides, everything...
