We stopped in based on reviews. So glad we did. Menu is very simple, but oh so good. We got the Darrell's special and the BBQ beef and shared them, both small. Small is a 6",large is 12". Maddi was our waitress and she was awesome. I'll definitely be back. We were there in between meal, so wasn't crowded.

We came here based on a recommendation from a neighbor. We were new to the area and wanted something regional. He raved about the Surf and Turf Po Boy so that's what we got.
