Since I recently started working in the area I've tried a couple times and have not been impressed at all. First time I called ahead and ordered the fried catfish since I know it takes a while, they said 10 minutes. Got there 20 minutes later and still wasn't finished with my order!

We walked in and they were going to close in 30 minutes, but very welcoming. We had great service and the food was good. Loved the macaroni and cheese. Good prices. Will go back if in the area.

This place had great BBQ and sides! We had the pork shoulder, ribs, and turkey. It was PLENTY to split with 2 or 3 people. The Cole slaw and beans were WONDERFUL!
