The pulled pork is delish! Fish tacos delish! Definitely a place to stop if you love BBQ! The waitress did a great job and sitting in a refurbished service station was pretty nostalgic.

As others have noted, the setting for this restaurant is a converted service station and there is nothing fancy. It has outdoor and inside seating and if the garage doors are down there is some AC on the inside. We had a selection of tacos, burritos and sandwiches and all were quite good. The fried pickles for a starter were also tasty and the breading stayed on the pickle.

Not the prettiest place in Savannah to have a meal, but it will be a delicious one! Hey it looks like it was an old gas staion converted into a restaurant, but these folks sure can cook! We all had the pulled pork and it was fantastic. My wife and daughter went with the BBQ plate and I just had the sandwich, but there is a well varied menu. All had a huge portion of BBQ and a nice variety of sides to choice from. My only disappointment was the side I selected. It was listed as a roasted corn salad, so I was expecting roasted corn, it was tasty but the corn was out of a can and not roasted. Be sure to get the fried pickles for an appetizer. These aren't the usual pickle chips but actually pickle wedges. Great flavor and the pickles were still crispy and they came with a very flavorful dippin sauce. Flavorful, that is the word I am looking for. Everything we tried had an explosion of flavor, especially the flan for dessert. Yeah you got to try it too! Our server was excellent, but it did look like service was slow going at a couple other tables. If you are near downtown Savannah and looking for BBQ, give this place a try.

Service was poor. The waitress took our drink order and disappeared for 15 minutes and returned without the drink. It took another 10 minutes to get my drink. Food was nothing spectacular. It was very bland and the rice was hard. The live music was way too loud. Won't be returning.

Casual place, mostly outdoors, with a creative cocktail menu and excellent BBQ. Had a Southern Gentleman, an updated mint julep with pineapple on the side. The pulled pork platter was excellent--I'd recommend the collard greens and plantains as sides, both perfectly cooked. For dessert, a bread pudding with walnuts, black cherries, and chocolate, served with walnut ice cream and chocolate sauce on the side. What a way to end the meal! Fine service too.
