Finding locations to pick up food with one gluten free person can be a challenge. Stopped by here what a great surprise. Ordered food all would like came home to try our new find. Food was good perfect everything had a great taste Noticed we had a different order called the place they took excellent care knew before explaining. We had a second chance to return had the first order this time again not disappointed by any means. Service was excellent Love the egg plant as something not seafood. Shrimp all different ways was a huge hit here.

WOW is this place fantastic! Their food is amazing. They have options that are quite unique for a BBQ joint- frog's legs, octopus salad, alligator tail- but my favorite is their jumbo fried shrimp. When you order, they take the fresh shrimp out of their icebox, bread it, and fry it fresh. It comes out hot and garlic-y, with a delish dipping sauce. Their cornbread is great, the garlic potatoes are wonderful, and their coleslaw is to die for! Their BBQ ribs are wonderful as well, as is the pork shoulder sandwich. Highly recommended!
