Had the two meat plate and wife had a sliced brisket sandwich. Sides were potato salad, sweet potato fries, and bbq beans. Meats were tender and juicy with a good smoky flavor. Only thing to improve would be to use filtered water as Jefferson's tap...More

Obviously, this is a very popular spot at lunch for it can get crowded, but with very good reason. The food is exceptionally good and prices are very reasonable. Great service tops it off.

Great food and great atmosphere (the postmaster is a hoot)! Must try the Swamp Fries, the ribs and the burnt ends. Can’t go wrong anywhere on the menu - and everything is priced just right!
