Really good food and great portions, moderately priced. There is something on the menu for everyone. Not many places I go can I get collared greens, they have it and it was very good.

Good tasting food. The pork bbq is flavorful and tender. the cornbread is delicious, and the coleslaw nice and creamy. The atmosphere is picnic style, very cozy seating. Not ideal for big parties.

I don't usually equate good southern BBQ with a city location in Norther PA. I consider myself a bbq expert and was quite pleasantly surprised with this location. The portion size was huge. I had the brisket and andouille sausage with beans and mac and...More

Staff is very accommodating to all customers. Food is always prepared fresh and delicious. First timers should totally try the spicy green beans and the brisket/andouille sausage.
