My fiancee loves this place! Every time she comes here is quick and friendly customer service and the order is made to perfection every time. The price in my opinion is a little to high for one sandwich but hey, the taste makes up for...More

A local treasure for years. If you like Carolina style this is your place. The sweet potato pie is amazing! Take-out at it's best.

This is a take out place only that has been in operation for a very long time. You can order, sandwiches, meals and sides. Generous portions and delicious.
