A legend in the BBQ world, its definitely worth a stop on by. Be prepared to eat-- a lot. Their all you can eat plate is usually more than enough artery clogging meat, but if you're like my old roommate, they'll fill your plate again.

We ate at the restaurant because of the reviews on Trip Advisor, majority said it was excellent. We were very disappointed. The place was very old and run down. The food was not very good, and I got a stomachache afterwards.

They don't call it the Church of the Holy Smokes for nothing. Food is down home soul food. Don't expect fancy surroundings!
