Although their menu items are a little pricey, I love their fried chicken, barbecue sandwiches, coleslaw, and tea. The employees are always nice and friendly. I always enjoy stopping by here when I'm in the area.

Best barbecue around I think. The brunswick stew is also tasty. Staff is very friendly and usually very good about refilling your beverage.
