Good BBQ place in town. The sauces they have are good. The Killer could be more spicy since I love spicy. The BBQ ribs are good. Fries are good. Will come back for sure!

We loved Russell Street! We found parking rather easily, and upon walking in were met with a friendly greeting. Decor is fresh and fun. We started with the pimento cheese appetizer (YUM!) and the hush puppies. I don't usually eat fried anything but wow, these...More
