I love supporting black businesses because I too am black. However, I think it's ridiculous to wait an hour for any food, especially when you never get it. My husband and I decided to visit this spot after leaving Oxon Hill Rentals across the street...More

Food for friends at work. Perfect chicken and ribs with the most sides one can eat. The sweet potatos, macaroni and cheese and apple pie is to die for.

Have eaten here (carryout) three times. The first two visits were OK and the ribs were goof. But the third time I was deeply disappointed when opening the box at home to find mainly scraps of rib production. The service on this occassion was not...More

Order a full slab of ribs with mild sauce on the side. Excellent! On previous visits I've ordered green beans, greens, and sweet potatoes as a side. They were well-seasoned and tasty! Only downside is the length of the lines. Go early, especially on weekends...More
