We happened upon this non-descript building and didn't initially notice the restaurant; only the BBQ and Doughnut logos on the Food Truck parked out front. But we went inside, walking into what looked like a smaller version of the gift shops found at the Cracker...More

Local, quaint place. Visited after a trail ride at Marriott Ranch up the road. BBQ ribs and sandwich really good- felt more south than we were! Apple fritters yum yum, more dessert than a donut. Not very big place, but does have some patio seats...More

Apple donuts covered in sugar and steaming hot! OMG I told myself before I started, "Ok, only 2!"....Yeah, there was a little gilt after the 3rd one went down...but I got over it pretty quickly!

We love the country ham on biscuits. It’s not on the menu but they will make it for you! It’s yummy. You also need to try the Apple donuts!

Returning home from a motorcycle trip to the Chesapeake Bay, we took the long way round through the rolling hills of Virginia...horse farms and wineries! We had lunch at this quirky local treasure, where the lines were long, the service quick, and the food fabulous!...More

Delicious, moist, spicy pork BBQ and super sloppy (in other words tasty) steak and chicken sandwiches. The cole slaw's nothing special, but the baked (black) beans were interesting - not what I'd call traditional or typical baked (brown) beans, but very good. The atmosphere's fun...More
