Me and my husband stopped by for lunch and it was delicious. I had a delicious chop sandwich with a mouth melting potato salad. My husband had an amazing brisket and smoked sausage plate. Definitely a little hidden gem to stop by !

If you are looking for a cool place (decor and temperatures) with great food and fun staff . . This is the place. Not only were our BBQ plates good but the warm peach cobbler and Bluebell Icecream was a treat that was amazing!
