We visit this restaurant frequently and are never disappointed. Large Chopped Pork sandwich comes with a generous portion of meat. Meat has a good Smokey flavor. I prefer with no sauce. Their turkey sandwich is also very good. Jessie and Linda are always very courteous.

You might miss this place, out in the parking lot of the Shell station, but that would be your mistake! I had the pork ribs plate, and the ribs were very very good, smoky, tender, falling off the bone. That they were served with a...More

Jessie's place may be tiny, but his wood-smoked BBQ is the best. Freshly cooked, not over-cooked. We get BBQ pork, coleslaw, and beans to take home (Greenville) or to the beach . The family loves it. And the lemonade! The cats lurking around the smoke...More
