Had this catered for a business luncheon. Very tasty as far as BBQ goes. Some people don't like sauce so they leave it plain then you add your own. Although this is a great option, you don't really get that 'cooked in' taste. I prefer my sauce slow cooked in the meat to give it that taste throughout.

This is one of the best barbecue joints that I have been to in the northern part of the US. Brisket is awesomely moist and luscious. I also got the sausage. It was the perfect amount of flavor and spice and was also very juicy. But the best thing I tasted was the deep fried potato salad. It is the... More

Turkey sandwich,baked beans and collard greens are the best I've had anywhere!! The sauces are unique and amazing. If I lived here I'd be here every other day! You can buy the sauce for home and I highly suggest you do.. Bc you will be wishing u did.. This place is yes.

I absolutely LOVE the pulled turkey. The $6 sandwich is huge and filled with juicy turkey with just the right amount of smoke. Perfect on its own and great with any of the sauces, especially the white sauce. Interesting sides--especially the green beans. Can't go wrong with the brisket either.

I ordered barbecue brisket. The place was friendly, clean, very casual, small. The food was tasty. They have 1 larger patio table. Would be nice if they had a couple smaller ones. Really no complaints though.
