This is real, smoky, simple barbecue. Several plates and sandwich combos to choose from plus delicious sides. Hush puppies are made to order and are out of this world! It is cafeteria style with paper and plastic.

We had the pulled pork sandwich-my favorite & loaded chicken nachos-my husbands favorite. The nachos could feed two people or 4 as an appetizer! It’s worth stopping in!

So we eat here weekly.... just love the pickles (spicy and sweet), the variety of excellent meats, and those yummy ho cakes that are like pancakes (instead of flour tortillas). Love the spinach and cornbread too.....
