I’ve been going to this restaurant ever since they opened. I’ve never had a bad thing on the menu. Johnny cakes are a staple. Pretty good service. If you like bbq then I recommend this place.

The chicken is melt-in-your-mouth tender. The beef brisket is melt-in-your-mouth tender, and with not-too-much fat. The cornbread pancakes are terrific! Our first visit, we agreed it was one of our favorite restaurants!
