This is a tiny rather rustic little place with a friendly staff. The pulled pork was okay, the sauces not great and the veggies all over cooked but the hush puppies were delicious. They do not serve alcohol- just sodas and iced tea. All in...More

Fast friendly service and really good portions all around. We found good pulled pork, super tender ribs, good chicken, great sides. Sauces were more like salad dressings—straight vinegar and spices, ehhh. Delicious hush puppies. Typical diner menu otherwise.

So disappointed! Used to love this place. This time sides lacked flavor and seasoning. BBQ was very dry.

Delicious pulled pork and fried chicken. Old southern cooking at its best. Very good food for not much money.
