We stopped by for take out while in town. The smoked chicken was really good, hubby enjoyed the bbq plate and son raved about the bbq sandwich. Lots of side choices. Really friendly and quick service which made our tummies happy.

Enjoyed an excellent dinner and both enjoyed the barbecue. Loved the hush puppies. The portions were quite large. Looked like this was a very popular local, family restaurant. Would recommend this and would return if back in the area.

I ordered BBQ chicken, it was very good. My kids also loved their meals. We had to order more hush puppies, sized right and taste very well. Nice atmosphere and friendly service

The BBQ is good. The sides are excellent. Fried okra and Mac and cheese were a big hit with the kids. Plus they have Cheerwine. What more could you want?

This a fast and friendly place! Great selection and our children (6&8) loved it. Their hushpuppies were so good and so was their friend okra. My husband and I were actually disappointed in their BBQ. It was too dry and stringy. But, everything else was...More
