“Hot Sauce: you have been warned. Get extra drinks early.”

No wait at 6pm on a Friday is a plus. Tasty dinners and combo plates give you entree, two sides plus cornbread which stayed warm quite a while. The boneless "wings" are more like nuggets. They warn you that the home hot sauce is XXX Hot and "afterburn" a waittress term is accurate, it doesn't seem that bad at first.... What I didn't like was that after the entree arrived the waittress disappeard until the next table had to order - really could have used refills on the drinks after the hot
and reallly hot sauces for the BBQ. Sure, they don't make extra money on the drink refills but they should check on the customer more; it was busy but not jam-packed. Overall it was actually better than our first visit here.

We stopped here on a chance while traveling home from VA Beach. My goodness what a GREAT place to eat! The portions were massive; the flavors out of this world; the service beyond excellent. Our server, CHRIS, was helpful and extremely knowledgeable on the food they offer. He gave us a "taste test" plate of the 6 BBQ sauces and was right on the mark for each flavor.
My older son had a burger so big he could only eat half of it...he's 21 & eats like a early 20's male, so you KNOW that burger was big. My husband, younger son (18) and I had the 1/2 sized family meal..."feeds 2-3 people"....we all stuffed ourselves yet there was still leftovers!
Everything was delicious & cooked to perfection. Chris told us everything they make is cooked fresh every day...nothing comes out of a package ready to heat & serve & it DOES taste fresh!

Lots of servers on their own time but attentive when you flag them down. Noisy. Excellent ribs & sides.

If they say "peel off the bone ribs" then why don't they? And maybe Happy Hour has specials but when your buying Coors Light, C'mon, it's not a $4 beer. Enough said.
