Great BBQ. We had pulled pork, brisket and ribs. We visit here about once a month and they have the best potato salad. I tried the sweet puffs tonight and they were awesome!

Nice surprise find! Delicious! I had the pulled pork sandwich with Mac n cheese. Hubby had beef brisket with cheese and fried okra. Both sides needed a bit of salt & pepper, still tasty. Get Buck sauce on side if you try it.

We stopped in while traveling on I-16. We come through the area around once or twice a year and try to stop in if possible. This time i had the 3 meat combo (chicken, pork and brisket) andy wife had the Scooby Snack. We also took home 6 pieces of delicious cake to eat and give to family. Great eating!

They have all the standard BBQ offerings with table and counter service. The ribs were very good and I liked the baked beans but the potato salad was a bit bland with to much mayonnaise. The server was friendly. The kids didn't like the hamburgers but my son-in-law did like the brisket.

We stopped in today for lunch, a friend had recommended the brisket to me and I decided to give it a try. Oh my goodness, it is so tender and moist. I was able to cut it with my fork. The brunswick stew was good but a little to much tomato for my taste, the baked beans were very good.... More

We stopped here for lunch en route to Atlanta when our tour group had to cancel our trip to Savannah due to Hurricane Matthew. The service was good, we got our food quickly so we could get back on the bus on time, and the food was pretty good. I especially liked the sweet potato tater tots, called sweet puffs.... More

Clean and friendly. Food was hot and good. They have family packs and a good list of sides. We had a brisket plate that was juicy and tender and a pleasure to eat. Very crowded at lunch time small parking lot

Thank Penny F
