They have the absolute best BBQ beans you could ever eat, smoked turkey and BBQ pork are great as well. Everyone that works there is always very nice. If you go, they don't accept credit/debit cards.

The restaurant is fairly small in dining area, but the menu is quite lengthy. They are known for their pulled pork, baked beans and potato salad. However, their menu features foods that you might expect at a Barbecue restaurant: including chicken, ham, turkey, and more.... They have perfected it all. This place has the BEST turkey sandwiches.

I think this qualifies as a "hole in the wall" restaurant which in my book is the place to go. Have been going here for years. As others will say, the baked beans, ham and turkey are top notch. Remember no credit cards- cash or checks. Not much room to eat in, but carry out is the way to go.

This is mainly a takeout restaurant as their dining area is about 120 square feet. Their BBQ pork or mutton is some of the best in the area. The BBQ beans are the best ever anywhere as they add the trimmings of the pork to it. Their dip sauce is also fantastic.
