I loved this place! I had the Hog Special Sandwich which was huge. This place is a blast from the past! The service and prices were incredible. Heather you deserve huge kudos! Not to be missed if you are after BBQ in J'Ville.

We just ordered Take-out Rack of Baby Back Ribs, Small Turkey, Sweet potatoes, greens, cole slaw, and banana pudding. This place has friendly service, extremely good food. Their food is always fresh. Very good value for the money. We love their drive thru.
