This is the best BBQ place bar none! I love the BBQ plate. The collards, green beans, corn fritters, pickled beets, baked beans, and field peas and snaps are awesome! Completely love the place even though it's in the middle of nowhere!

Beat ribs in town, shrimp, BBQ, hush puppies are great. Chicken n dumplings like grandma made, and always fresh desserts. We eat at buds often and I haven't found anything that wasn't good.
