Very good food and service. The food is home cooked veggies, hickory pit bar-b-que, home made desserts. The Hickory Pit is a smaller restaurant but the food is very good.

Many options for pork and chicken bbq. Food served very quickly and with a great southern greeting. Portions too large, couldn't try several options.
