Limited menu, small restaurant, lacks everything, atmosphere, hospitality, choices and cleanliness. food was cold and average.

Wine out of a plastic beer cup, no Budlight Draft so poured from Bud bottle into a plastic cup so it looked like Draft. Unattentive bartenders-spent more time on the patron side chatting. Nachos weren't that great. Just a disappointing night all around, won't return!

Enjoyed it for sure. Got ribs, Apple coleslaw, mashed potatoes and the Mac n' cheese appetizer with pulled port & chicken. We got it all as takeout and enjoyed it very much.

The mac & cheese is delicious. $3.99 for a giant side that tasted like my childhood. Mmm. The catfish and grits were also tasty.

All the shouting was not justified. Nice venue, good service and BBQ without a clue. No smoke flavor, no zip to sauces (ok if you like sugar). Beans were mushy; no crunch to cukes. Came for the fried pickles and they were among the worst...More

For my husband's birthday bash he wanted to go to a restaurant with a robust meat menu. We found it! Found this restaurant highly recommended on TripAdvisor. The appetizers were sensational -just the right mix of flavors. The staff suggested the Fried Pickled and wings....More
