Our group frequents this place. The food is good. Excellent service. Moderately priced. The ribs are probably the best around. Nice family atmosphere. Atmosphere is so so but the food makes up for it. I highly recommend it.

This place was okay. That is the best word to politely summarize what I ate. I am a city girl with country roots- whole family from NC- and let me tell you I've had better ribs and chicken at a whole in the wall joint...More
