The pulled pork was so salty it was hard to eat. The collards were over salted. The coke and chips were good. Would not recommend to a real bbq eater just not good. The meat had no smoke flavor

The food was great. The place is small so you have to get there early if you would like a place to sit and eat.

Barbecue is great and the sides are even better. Love the service here -- they make you feel like they're glad you're here. Everything is home-made. Authentic collard greens & banana pudding -- just what I grew up with. At a great price.
