Nice place with good food. The serving sizes are generous and the atmosphere is fun. They have mild, medium, and hot sauce.

Had 1 1/2 hrs before an airport pickup. Stopped in and ate at the bar. Had ribs with mac and cheese and hot apples. I wasn’t particularly hungry but ... man was everything delicious.

We sampled the brisket, Georgia pork, ribs, baked beans and chicken tenders. Tenders were average but the rest of the meat was off the charts good. Great local eats! Friendly and attentive staff. Reasonably priced lunch with huge portions.
