Came up on restaurant search using TripAdvisor so I got the chicken and rib dinner. Meat was great, smoked perfectly and very juicy and tender. Gumbo and rice side was excellent. Fast takeout made it a perfect meal

Hard to find good brisket in South Carolina but this was tasty and tender but served in a puddle of grease. Slaw was OK and sweet potato pie was great. Will come back to try ribs.
