Delicious BBQ, friendly service

Anytime we're in the South we have to try the BBQ in several places. We heard about this place on TA. It was very good. Tangy sauce, nice rubs, really good Mac and cheese and baked beans. The Cole slaw was a little vinegary but everything else, topped off with the service, was very good. I would go... read more

We had an early dinner on Super Bowl Sunday. As visitors to HH, we always want to try local BBQ. I had BBQ pork and my husband had spare ribs. Neither of us liked the smokey flavor that lingered all evening. My pork was a shredded blob of red brown meat. My husband's ribs were dry and the sauce was... More

Recently I stopped in at one of my favorite places to eat. To my surprise, something has happened to the food. My order had shrunk in quantity, but the price had remained the same. The food was good, but come on, do we deserve this much smaller portion for the same price? So yes, disappointed. However, your pecan pie still... More

Having driven past this restaurant many times and read the reviews in local publications and Trip Advisor, we didn't hesitate to make this a lunch destination. My husband and I had the pulled pork sandwiches (lunch special) that came with a choice of sides, and were thrilled with our experience. Service was very good and the lunch did not disappoint....

Ok Bbq, but no staples like hash & rice or mustard based sauce. Cheese buscuits are good. Bartender is on his game.

We have eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed. The food and service are both great. The cheesy biscuits are the best and I love the BBQ chicken is delicious.

Since moving to the area I have tried this place a couple times now with mixed experiences. The ribs are dense not the tender fall off the bone style I personally prefer. The sides are great and the service predictable.
