Not only Great BBQ but also catfish, yum, I had to get an extra jar of OT's BBQ sauce for home just to try to make my own but it is never the same...OT's is the BEST!

Little hole-in-the-wall takeout only place. Make their own sauce, probably my favorite sauce anywhere! Sides are also very good, greens are great IMHO! OT consistantly wins awards at competitions. Good stuff!
