So, what is comfort food with a southern accent? We are not a BBQ house but many say our slow hickory smoked back ribs, pulled pork and pulled chicken are the best when smothered with our signature Mahagony BBQ Sauce. Not to be overlooked is the Jambalaya Pasta. And, of course, for the light at heart, we also have scrumptious broiled Salmon cakes, awesome salads and more for those watching their waist line. You want the southern accent? Try our Southern Supper or any of our great Po' Boys, Burgers with an attitude, and fine Southern Salads. We guarantee you will be pleasantly surprised with our fare, we use the freshest of ingredients, and we don't charge you an arm and leg for it!

She ordered the BBQ Fried Chicken ($16.99) and I had the Brisket and Andouille Sausage ($16.99.) Our meats were very tasty but both the Coleslaw and Potato Salad sides need seasoning, any king of seasoning. Our 22oz beers were $6.49 and $7.49. Purevdulam was pleasant...More

Currently sitting in the restaurant and the service is unbelievably horrible. The service staff appear to be overwhelmed and frustrated with the large groups present. Walked to the waitress to give our order (2 people in our party) after she intentionally ignored our table. One...More

Had the pulled pork sandwich with chips. The grease had already soaked into the bun, making it inedible. The pulled pork was great, especially after adding bbq sauce. The chips were tasteless.

Seasoning was lacking on the food and cold when served. Did not offer to refill drinks. Staff was not attentive and had an "I don't care attitude".
