Chicken is always good. I don't like pork but family seems to. Hush puppies good. Slaw good. Staff always nice and friendly.

This isn't just any drive through. First of all, great interior dining room. Then perfect service from everyone. Pork sandwich was so tasty. The chicken was obviously made there and not brought in from a bag. Thanks for the carolina experience.
