Went on a Friday night around 7pm. Pretty crowded but didn't wait too long. The price can't be beat! Loved the bbq, corn, tomato pie, green beans! Everything was so good and the staff was friendly! The only thing I didn't like was the ladies bathroom stalls are small and no lock...kind of odd..but nonetheless, we will be back!

If you are looking for a down home atmosphere with great seasoned vegetables and BBQ, then you are in the right place. It is only open Thursday-Sunday and the weekends usually have a line out the door, so timing is important. Definitely worth standing in line for.

If you want authentic local BBQ this is the place to go. It was packed with local families. Very casual and in expensive. I was not expecting a buffet but the food was good and hot. Did not see beer being served.
