This is a great old fashioned drive in restaurant. I tried the fried chicken and it was very good in the BBQ sauce. Very filling, low prices and a one of a kind experience!

My family and I stopped at this old drive-in barbecue place. We all loved it stepping back into 1959. The barbecue and hush puppies were excellent the french fries were good.I will recommend this place for good barbecue.
