Great food and great atmosphere. This is a regular stop for our family every year! If you are not sure what you would like, get the Pig Pile Combo to share! Make sure there is plenty of cornbread!

This is another restaurant that we go to annually. The food is delicious - fried pickles, dry rub ribs, smoked prime rib, great cornbread. Can't go wrong. Friendly service. Owner is a really nice guy. Not sure why this is ranked so low.
