Hole in the wall, locals BBQ buffet and take out. I've been eating here since 1960, is still the same family recipe, BBQ pork, hash, rice, Cole slaw. Loaf of bread on each picnic table. 1960's vintage window air conditioners. Ambience is PWT, but is Best BBQ in the world. Buffet cost $8.50 each person.

We was having problems with our hotel and needed a place to run to for food. We just happened upon this place. It was amazing. Buffet. Usually not a fan of buffets but this one was great!
