This is one of the most authentic Barbeque restaurants in the south. Pulled pork, smoked mac 'n cheese, and amazing baked beans too the menu. We have dined there may times as well as used them for catering. It's as good as it gets.

Great bbq, vinegar based sauce, pork, ribs, loaf bread. Great flavor and they cook over a wood pit. Not much room inside but tables outside to eat.

We went here because the TripAdvisor ratings were high....WRONG! The people working there were very nice, but the BBQ was tough and rubbery, the guy at the desk would just grab the meat with his bare hands and cut it up and then touch other things in the kitchen without washing his hands, there was almost no seating, and it...

Went on recommendation of the hotel and got the ribs with collard greens, slaw answer friend green tomatoes. The rub was really good and the sauce was awesome but. The ribs were over cooked and hard time eat. Collared greens were very good but NJ Ottawa enough and fried green tomatoes were soggy.

Fantastic real BBQ ribs - some of the best I've ever eaten. Nice smoke flavor can be eaten with or without the BBQ sauce. The sides all very good: green beans, fried okra, fried green tomatoes - delicious! And on top of all of this the waitress is super friendly and pleasant. The atmosphere is "Alabama" as in The University... More

The fourth in our party had hamburger steak & gravy. Sides eaten included many fried green tomatoes, mac n cheese, collards &... More

Our second visit and the food is just as good as it was the first time 2 years ago. Today I had mixed plate of ribs and pork. More than enough for lunch and dinner! They have a wide selection of sides. Although out of potato salad, I had green beans and fried green tomatoes which were perfect. My husband... More

They were extremely busy, but i think the bbq had been prepared in advance and just warmed up to meet the demand. I went for takeout.
