Went by myself since I was in town for business. The place has a great vibe to it. Kinda dingy (but clean), like a garage or southern bar feel.

It's my second time there. The food was delicious and the service was good. The only negative things I can say is it didn't look clean to me and the parking is not great. I did enjoy the food so that's a plus.

We go here often and have never had a bad meal. We typically get wings and ribs but every side is delicious as well.
