Good southern BBQ with all the traditional sides. Never been disappointed. Really like the new expanded facility.

We eat the chicken. It is tender, moist and has not been sitting there all day. There are a couple of sauces and they ate both good. Although the BBQ is good, the banana pudding is to die for.

I keep trying to give this place a fair shake. But after two visits I am not impressed. Grant it the food is pretty good but the cost is outrageous. They do a good business, but its not backyard BBQ.
Today I wanted slaw dogs. $9.68 for two slaw dogs and a small drink. Come on! There was nothing special. It was not a Nathan or Hebrew National. It was just not worth almost$4 a piece. They offer no combos... what's with that.
I saw the pulled pork plate. It looked really good. And so did the pulled chicken. I plan to give it a try after I save some money. I know the SWEET HEAT sauce is some good stuff.

Since moving to the new building the barbecue is just as good as always. The mac and cheese used to be baked and tasted like old fashioned homemade; not now, taste like it came from a mix. The cold slaw is ground looking green. For the price you are much better to go to Cookout restaurant down the street.

Simply one of my favorite authentic southern BBQ spots in Georgia. Pulled pork is my go to entree but they also have pulled chicken, ribs and other meat options. Pork is delicious. Well seasoned and has since smoke ring which tells me it's done low and slow. There are many sauce options too by tread lightly because while good,you want to enjoy the true flavor of the meat.

They have recently updated the place and added a new building it's fantastic. Great addition. They also cater. Love it!
