Tons of eats options all around this place but don’t go anywhere else. Fantastic food at a great price. The meat is on point, the cole slaw was excellent, and the sauce is to die for. Don’t pass it up!

Came here for lunch solely based on positive reviews. How can my opinion be so different from so many others. I just don’t see it. Came at 1pm for lunch and although there we’re several others in the restaurant the food tasted old, and dry....More
