This place feels full of southern atmosphere at its best. The nachos were some of the best ever! Loved the rib wrap. Also delicious banana pudding, which our waitress recommended. Service--our waitress irma--was so friendly and her recommendations were on point. Highly recommended.

Service was friendly and fast. Tasted the ribs, wings, mac and cheese and potato salad. I had higher expectations, food was not anything that I will rave or recommend.

We split the platter with 3 meats plus 1 and 3 sides. We liked the baked beans and the ribs. The other items were just okay. I also tried the banana pudding and it was okay. The service was terrific and the atmosphere is energetic.

Don’t avoid this place because you’re on a diet or whatever. The pulled pork salad is delicious. Lots of dressing choices. Quick service is good especially during the work week!

Very cool atmosphere. The folks inside were down home country friendly. Southern hospitality at its finest. The service was awesome. The food was fast, and hot when it arrived. The food was tasty with lots of flavor. My son and I licked our plates clean.

The restaurant is located in downtown, very near to our hotel. Very easy to reach by foot or by car. The food was delicious and the beer also. We learned that they have a brewery. The banana pudding was homemade and fantastic! The service was...More

I don't think they have beef. They do have chicken and turkey options.
