Get the pork tips sandwich. Get the corn casserole (fantastic). Get the pulled pork. Don’t get the slaw (missing something -we tried salting it, but it didn’t help). Should’ve gotten the Brunswick stew instead (looked yummy). Great service, good prices

The locals were celebrating their Annual Gold Rush Festivities. The restaurant had set up a pretty process on fencing off their outside area at the front to take orders for outside and inside seating. There were hundreds of people filling the streets and shops. Both...More
