We had ribs, brisket, and pulled pork, best ever, especially the ribs! Ribs had an awesome outer crust, well seasoned. The Japple sauce was fabulous, especially on the collard greens. Save room for Pecan pie! It beats any we've ever had! I'll definitely eat here...More

We had smoked turkey, brisket and ribs. Turkey was amazing, as was the brisket and ribs. Ribs are dry rubbed and I loved the rub. Mac and cheese was one of the sides and nothing to brag about. Not at all special.
