BBQ 1/4 bird and 3 ribs with sweet potato and okra, chased with peach cobbler. The chicken was succulent and tasty. The BBQ sauce is not too thick and on the sweeter side.

We stopped by while traveling back home to MI. It is just off I-75 but don't let that stop you. I shared a plate of chicken and ribs with my 9 year old.

We have a group of 26 and they, surprisingly, handled our group very well. It was a little cramped but the food and service made up for it. I didn't hear any complaints about any of the entrees and we were able to get in and out in less than 90 minutes. I can imagine that the experience is great... More

Traveling south to Florida we stopped here for dinner. Great southern home-cooking. The ribs were some of the best I've had. Service was fast and friendly. Portions were large so unfortunately we didn't have room too sample desert.

Wow! Everything here is fantastic from the meats to the vegetables. The greens are seasoned well with plenty of Potlicker left over. Definitely take the time to get off the highway and try this place. Great atmosphere and friendly service. It's worth it!
