I stopped out of curiosity and was happy I did! Yes, parking can be troublesome but it is worth the small effort. You order and pay at a window in the kitchen, seat yourself and then get served. The place was very clean. The young...More

Been here twice. Parking can be very difficult if you can’t get in primary lot. If you have to go to secondary lot it is above the establishment. No big deal unless you drive a low lying car like ours. It drug and scraped across...More

That brisket is my favorite. You can have it chopped in a sandwhich or by the slice. I prefer on sandwhich because they cut off the fat. Great atmosphere, great menu, great service.

Their BBQ is hands down best in the county if not state. Jalepeno cheese grits are to die for. Brunswick stew is great! Pork rinds are yummy. Cant go wrong here.

Since I first ate here, we have been back no less then 8 times buying 4 meals at a time. While the pork and dry rub ribs are still excellent, the brisket has slid downhill and fast. It has been very fatty the past few...More

The looks of this place are deceiving. It doesn't look much like a sit down restaurant. We ordered our food in the back half of the restaurant. They have 2 sections; one looks like the original restaurant and the other half looks like an addition...More
