BBQ sandwich very good, love the fried chicken. Lots of southern style sides. And of course there's banana pudding. Service very good, food comes out hot to your table. Fries can be a little greasy, hush puppies great substitute.

This place has the best chicken I've ever eaten and the service was outstanding. We really enjoyed our meal and will definitely be going back. Store was very clean and has one of the highest health grades I've ever seen.

The food here is terrible. There is no flavor to the chicken tenders and the sides are GROSS! Another person in our party ordered the fried chicken and said it was ok at best.

This is one of my favorite places to eat when I visit Jacksonville. The staff makes you feel welcome, and the bbq a little on the spicy side, but keeps me coming back for more. The value pack meal is the best deal, and they...More
