I can eat hear often but I don't like spicy foods so I have to be careful in what I order. We had ribs and catfish strips. Everything was good even the sweet tea.

Beef Brisket was excellent along with BBQ Chicken. Choice of many tasty sauces. Not thrilled with the potato salad, was full of raw onions.

This is definitely one of our go-to places for good food in a great place. We normally get the combo that feeds all of us. Great sauce. We like the roadhouse decor, and the music too. And the staff are always nice.

Being by myself on this trip, I was happy to have quick service. The waitress took my order and my meal was out in less than 10 mins. Pork sandwich was good and the dollar beer special was a bonus.
