I am used to West Tennessee BBQ. Ketchup based sauce instead of vinegar. If your used to minced meat and vinegar they have good sandwiches. Check is bae. Notorious. I dont like chicken, but theres is great.

Great pulled pork and fried chicken. Dining area for very casual seating. We usually pickup and go with our food. Pulled pork is nicely smoky, served with or without sauce, tender and not greasy.
