Wise men know, never get between a Southern Woman and her food. But Southern food; it's serious business. Now, you can go to places that have things like fried okra, and watch the relocated Southern gal get all wiggly in her seat- to be served...More

I come here often for lunch with coworkers. The place is small with limited seating but big on flavor and portions. Great food at a decent price.

Hello, I've a question for the cook or manager. Due to food sensitivities, I am supposed to avoid HFCS (high fructose corn syrup). Typically this is in jarred BBQ sauces, etc. Can you tell me if your sauces are all homemade or if you use any jar brand sauce? Also, what flavors sauce do you make? We live in Sullivan and would love to come try the brisquit and ribs too. Also, any chance of homemade deviled egg potato salad? (It is the best side, you know.)
