This place has been around for years! They have the best Brunswick Stew I've ever tasted! People drive for miles to eat here. Love their sweet sauce. I've never had anything bad at this place.

They aren't chincy here with the serving of meat. The pork plate has a generous portion. Comes with two sides and a choice of breads. There's no sauce on the meat. You choose from three options on each table. Drinks are self serve. So you...More

We eat the chicken. It is tender, moist and has not been sitting there all day. There are a couple of sauces and they ate both good. Although the BBQ is good, the banana pudding is to die for.

Since moving to the new building the barbecue is just as good as always. The mac and cheese used to be baked and tasted like old fashioned homemade; not now, taste like it came from a mix. The cold slaw is ground looking green. For...More

The Smoke House a great place to bring your family, friends or business associates. Friendly relaxed atmosphere. Doing food right for 40 years. The BBQ is smoke with hickory for 12 to 14 hours, everyday. Sides, sauces and desserts are all made in-house, from scratch, daily. We are not fast food, but we do serve great food as fast as we can. So, come and relax and enjoy!
