Sat in the bar area. The girl tending bar, Lily, was busy but remained friendly, funny, and attentive to her guests. I usually have the brisket, but had the catfish upon recommendation. Very good.

My wife and I went here while I was on business. We arrived around 8:00 pm, and it was obvious that everyone was scurrying about trying to get their side work done so they could leave. My wife ordered the smoked chicken. It came out...More
