Went here after a wedding to get food. The rib tip sandwich is phenomenal. Also tried the fried green tomatoes and they were good too. Mister ordered the wings and a turkey burger for later. All the food was great!

This place is in a bad section of town. The appearance, both inside and out, is dirty and run down. The food, however, was fairly good. I wouldn't recommend it.
