New location, a bit far off the main path, but same excellent food. BBQ pulled pork is very good, fried chicken just exceptional. No experience eating in, but pick up service was prompt, precise and courteous . Absolutely not to miss.

The fried chicken is great. The sides are fine. The cornbread is weird. The service is friendly. The decor is folksy and amusing. It's a great value.
