The ribs were perfect! Okra was hot and crispy! They are great people. Friendly fast service! Drive thru option is great and you won't be sorry stopping here to pick up dinner for you and the family.

Their meat always tastes great no matter the kind of meat, preparation method or even the time you had to wait. They're pretty quick and even the fried okra is grand. Family atmosphere, relaxed, good eatin'!
