I had a combo platter. The sliced turkey is really worth trying. Nice atmosphere...friendly staff. After you are done, you can stroll next door to the Green Parrot.

Everyone in our party loved the food. The brisket and pork were fantastic. Cornbread was good also. Wings and side dishes were also great. Nothing really bad to say. I wish we had one of these at home.

Dropped in this neat little off-sidewalk eatery for a late lunch and was pleasantly surprised by the great food and friendly service. The fried macaroni balls were wonderful! A great variety of burgers and barbecue....and even a friendly chicken to boot😄

Go. Just stop what you're doing and go. This place is unreal. The Mac Daddy Bowl is life changing. It's probably 3 pounds of food - but it's BBQ heaven.

I tried the fish and chips the first night we ordered and my sister ordered the smoked turkey. It was incredibly delicious! The turkey was so tender it came apart and the cornbread was so moist you couldn't pick it up without it falling apart....More
