They have good ribs, excellent chicken and a big choice of sides. My favorite is the fried okra-never had it until there. They do cater an excellent buffet. You can eat there or take out.

...driving by, you'd think this was a dangerous biker bar.....but it's really a (very) modest little place to pick up and take home delicious pulled pork and related bbqs.....fast and cheap. Give them a try and confirm this is a hidden gem!

I Love the BBQ Chicken and my husband loves the ribs. I keep a menu in the car and at home. I also saved the website to my favorites. We have never eaten in. I love to see the smoker going outside.

Family visit, including my 93 yr old father-in-law. Ribs were simply fall-off-the-bone tender, putting a smile on the face of our 93 yr old sceptic!! Chicken was juicy, sides were delicious & unique. Will definitely return!!
