The restaurant is like walking back in time when things were simple. The service was very good, prices very reasonable for the amount of food you get and you can taste the good smoke flavor. The fries are always delicious and the tea is sweet.

Foot long hot dog was good. Fries were very fresh. My husband had barbecue and thought it was good. He really liked the hushpuppies; they were like in the 70's and fresh. We were there around 1:30 pm so they were not "leftovers" from lunch....More
