Simple southern comfort food. One bite of the fried chicken instantly reminded me of my grandmother's (from Alabama) fried chicken! Simple seasonings, hot and juicy! I also love a good macaroni and cheese....this is comfort food at it's best. The whole place is nothing special...More

The chicken was spicy and greasy. I liked the fried okra. Service was very slow! Drove by a days ago and they have closed.

We were very impressed with the BBq shack. We stopped by the other evening and had a great experience. Fresh blackened fish and awesome fresh BBQ brisket. This is not fine dining nor do they try to be. Just good food period.
