The food was great. I ordered a combo platter with bbq, one piece of fried chicken, small bowl brunswick stew, and 1/4 slab of ribs. The waitress was great and service was fast. Will return to try other menu items.

Wanted their chicken and barbecue. Chicken was so tender. Barbecue was good. Had their slaw, fries and hushpuppies. Their banana pudding is good too.

Not bad but I have had better. The meat (pulled pork) was dry and required a good deal of sauce. The sides were adequate but nothing special.

The pork barbecue is gluten free for sure. They have other things as well. I was surprised how large the menu was. Their hush puppies may be gluten free because they are made of corn meal. Of course, not all corn meals are... More
