I always get the lunch pulled pork sandwich meal. The fries are consistently hot & crispy. They have the "good" ice for their drinks. (Perfect for crunching!) I recommend getting a large tea & extra sauce for your sandwich.

The chopped pork has been very consistent over the past 20 years of eating here, I can't tell you how many times I've stopped by and picked up a family pack, which consists of a pile of chopped smoked pork, buns, slaw and beans. This...More

This is a very basic restaurant in terms of the physical space.....actually it is a little less than basic....however the food is excellent. Amazing pork sandwiches and excellent coleslaw. Service was friendly and quick. We shall return!

BBQ sandwich platters are great, whether chicken, pork or beef. Their sides are good, too. And the sweet tea...makes it all worthwhile! The staff is fantastic as well.

Was given this restaurants name to try and was glad we did. Nice variety of meats and chicken to choose from. Was a little on the dry side. Needed more sauce than it should. Other than that good place. Nice sides to accommodate the meal.

Sorry, but I grew up on vinegar-based sauce and having tried as many others I can find it's about the only one I like. They seem to use a ketchup-based sauce that is OK at best-to me That said, this place wasn't bad at all!...More
