Our food ( chicken, BBQ ribs) was not fresh...had been warmed up...tough and chewy. Because of warming up, not delivered together. Shrimp gumbo ...more like tomato soup...4 shrimp in large bowl. Hoping for unique spices , tasty Gullah ( soul) food...not so...won't return.

This was a gem of a place to find! My children had been there with their school and we returned. All the food is local and delicious.
