So glad our our usual restaurant was full. Tried this place and had wonderful food. The barbecue was great...the collard greens the best ever.

Good BBQ. The chicken wings are great. They are served with different sauces. The beer we had was great too. Good place for easy BBQ with friends for a good value. The staff is friendly and fast. We will come again.

Just outstanding BBQ. If you like ribs and chicken and wings and, my personal favorite, pulled pork, this is the place for you. The owner, Maurice, has created his own personal line of sauces ---- from mild to atomic ---- to fit any taste. And...More
