Honestly the best barbecue in Mississippi! Located in a house, they prepare your food when you get there. It's always fresh and the meat falls off the ribs! Trust me on this! 😊 You won't be disappointed!

Food was okay ,especially the coleslaw but the service was just atrocious. All of the wait staff acted like they didn't want to be there at all. Very unfriendly. Obviously almost no money spent on upkeep or maintenance. Very disturbing non sanitary behavior by employees...More

Pretty sure not. It's illegal to sell a game animal at a restaurant. But you can bet it would be good.
