This little place delivers on tasty BBQ. It is our go-to place whenever we get a hankering for Brisket or pulled pork. The Sweet potato pie is a must have item. Friendly staff and service.

I love small restaurants like this where the owner runs the register. It's really small but the BBQ is really good and the prices are reasonable. Good customer service and appeared to me like some of the family was also working. I love places like...More
