The shrimp at this restaurant is unrecognizable as shrimp - is popcorn shrimp & many little pieces torn apart. Chicken is just ok. Only BBQ available at any time is pulled pork

A lot of people really like this place. I feel like I'm an exception. I find there bbq to be bland and dry. But that is just my opinion. The chicken is okay and the service is fine. Just not my preference.

If you like good BBQ, and fried chicken, this place will make you a happy camper. Tea is one of the best you'll find anywhere.
