If you like the spicy stuff this is the place, Prices were bit inflated and waiter got orders way messed up. The sauce was bit to much for me in the vinegar. The cook was cleaning the fire and filled the place with smoke. Probably...More

What great BBQ! Chicken, Ribs, Pork and Conecuh Sausage with all the Southern sides you love. Reasonably priced with beer, soda and really good iced tea. Service is really friendly and fine. Great place to a couple or a crowd. You're gonna like it here.
