I have eaten there many times. It was always good. Yesterday at 4 pm we decided for yan early dinner. About 3 tables taken up. We ordered and it delivered quickly. I had a sandwich. It had no flavor at all. It looked like it came from a can of Tuna considering how it was formed and served. I keep tobacco sauce because I like it on many thing and everybody don’t keep it. No problem. It was on Texas toast. It was warm but not toasted. A side of potato salad. The container was half empty. My lady friend has just a sandwich and it looked just like mine. I’ve never had food this bad here. As we left I left the small tabasco bottle on the table. The served brought it to my attention as we walked out. I ask would you just through it away it’s empty. She looked at me like she could kill me. When we got outside we saw a sign trying to hire someone for the kitchen. Maybe this was the problem with the food. It wasn’t the problem with the server. She was just rude.

Since we both like bar b que, when we travel we like to stop at local restaurants and try their versions. As it was mid afternoon, we tried the pulled pork sandwiches. They were dry without any smokiness flavor at all. There were several sauces available at the table and we able to find one that enhanced the flavor to an acceptable level. With good bar b que, the flavor of the meat should stand on its own, sauces should only compliment the flavor.
I’m sure there’s better offerings in the area.

We enjoy eating here when passing thru Ellijay to visit family. It's a small, very clean environment. Every employee we have encountered has been great. But the food is even better! We don't mind the prices...you get what you pay for. And it's yummy!!! Although we have tried most every thing on the menu (& it's delicious), my family loves the okra! Who knew!? :)
