From the parking lot in back we (a good friend, me and my 2 sons) walked past the smoking chimney and that wonderful bbq aroma had our anticipation at a high. Unfortunately, it was downhill from there. I'm sure not a normal lunch wait, but...More

This was our first visit and the food was really REALLY good. You gotta try the ribs, chicken and the chipped (pulled) pork. I was not a fan of the brisket and the baked beans were just okay but the Mac & cheese was simply...More

I had the absolute worst experience at your establishment this morning with Nikki and your bartender! How awful for my first visit there. Great customer service goes far beyond good food!

Brisket is excellent, pulled pork above average too. But it rapidly goes downhill from there. I’ve tried their place in Savannah and it’s no better - they do not have the details down. Sadly, amateurish. Poor slaw and stew recipes. Cornbread (hoecakes) not delivered until...More
