Come hungry - lots of food for very reasonable price. Had ribs one night for supper and pulled pork the next day for lunch. Sweet potato fries are good.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. My waitress, Kaitlyn, was great and brought me a sweet tea pretty quick. I ordered the Susie Q combo, which is a simple BBQ sandwich with 3 sides. I went with the standard fries, baked beans and cole slaw....More
