This was a very friendly and very delicious place to eat!! We enjoyed brisket that melted in your mouth and 'fall off the bone' delicious ribs!! True southern style, as the recipes are original from 4 time BBQ World Champion , Myron Mixon, from Georgia!

Glad to see their A frame sign on the main street or we wouldn't have found this hidden gem. Great meal overall. Ribs were fall-off-the bone and sooo good. Got the BBQ box and the meaty mac and cheese and shared both with my son....More
