We wanted some barbecue and stopped for lunch. The pulled pork was terrific - best I’ve ever had here - and collards were really good, too. Long wait for food, had to sit at a dirty table, pickle container empty, maybe short staffed. But the...More

Caters thousands of events every year, of all sizes and styles: everything from formal weddings and backyard graduation parties to company picnics and family reunions.
