Loved the sweet hostesses who served the food and refills on drinks. Just darling. Bar b que was perfect as were the hush puppies. It's right off the interstate, so easy on and off.

If you love BBQ pork and fried chicken, this place is for you. They also have fried shrimp that is good. Best sweet tea around. They give senior discounts. They put plenty of BBQ on your sandwiches, and fries are more than you need.

Both the barbecue and the chicken are very tasty. My preference is the fried chicken which is crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. The restaurant itself is bare bones so I usually do take out.

Everything that I have eaten at this location is average to excellent. Fried chicken is better than fast food restaurants that specialize in friend chicken! Barbecue is excellent! Fries and coleslaw are excellent. Mass made potato salad is above average. Hush puppies are above average....More

That sounds about right for their soft drinks, including sweet tea. $1.50 w/free refills.
