Really enjoyed the hometown atmosphere and good southern barbecue. It was very busy but the service was still good. We had the pulled pork plates. The portions were large and the homemade banana pudding topped off a great meal.

We went as a late night dinner. Food came. Good food. Not world famous. Sorta expensive for what you get.

Beef brisket was tasty and hush puppies were good. Basic roadhouse decor - nothing fancy. Not licensed.

The best fall-off-the-bone ribs you'll ever have! The ribs have won many awards and these guys have even been featured on Food Network. The chopped BBQ is always lean and generously served. Great brisket, too. Service is fast and friendly. Casual atmosphere. Highly recommend for...More
