Love their turkey salad! Love their vinegrette dressing which is homemade. Wasn't crazy about the green beans. Best collard greens ever, they have this sweet taste to them, not bitter or plain tasting at all. Fried corn on cob, amazing! (Hard to mess up corn...More

I can't believe this place got such good reviews! Three of us stopped for lunch. The pork BBQ was dry, unseasoned and soaked in a liquid to make it appear moist. The baked beans tasted like Bush's Baked Beans. On the positive side the staff...More

We found this place using trip advisor and it didn't disappoint! The locale is nestled in a shopping center so it can be difficult to see from the road. Nevertheless, the food is superior and worth the trouble of finding it. We had pork barbeque...More
