Great BBQ. I had a stacker item with pulled pork, grits, coleslaw, jalepenos and sauce. It was messy and mind blowing flavor. My wife had rack of ribs and grits, very happy wife. She liked the fact they had honey for her biscuit.

Travel time was about 30 minutes going. We took alternate route back using GPS to avoid the I-4 construction and the time difference was not enough to be of concern.
