This is a great place to eat. The food is fresh and served hot. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu but my favorite is brisket and catfish. The staff is friendly and efficient

Loved the ribs, pulled pork, potato salad and baked beans. Didn’t get a 5 cause the Brisket was dry but should I ever be in the area again well worth the stop. Sweet sauce was my favorite

Best BBQ around! People drive quite a ways to get some. Off of 107 so easy to locate. They have meat only plates or meat and sides like Cole slaw. Hush puppies are delicious! My family prefers the sweet BBQ sauce but there's other options....More

Excellent BBQ. Because it is so good the waiting sometimes is a little on the long side. Food is good and service mostly good. A most enjoyable venture.
