Wanted a barbecue pork and Cole slaw sandwich and passed this place on the highway. So glad I remembered the name. Prices were good...The sandwich was awesome ... Also had a hot dog that was good. This will definitely stay on my Friday night places to eat list! Thanks for good food and fast service
