I got fried catfish and I love it when prepared as thin skinny strips. Very nice and crunchy. One of us got a bar-b-que sandwich. My husband got something that was chicken fried. He said food was a little burnt maybe that grease was getting old. I don't know my husband is a cook and he looks for things like... More

I've been twice. The last time they were literally remodeling while we ate. It was very intrusive and loud. The brisket sandwich was fine. Nothing special. The server was fine. They have plenty of side options.

I must say that for a last minute decision to stop and eat, it was more than satisfying. The staff was extremely courteous, and we were greeted and sat immediately. The service staff were awesome and attentive. My glass was never past half full, which is how I determine whether the service was satisfactory. My hard to please mother (Retired... More

I walked in and the "BBQ Smoke" smell put a smile on my face. This place is worth the top 3 rating for the town! Service was great and quick. They don't have Diet Coke but they do serve coke. We tried the chicken fried bacon and pickles for an appetizer. I had to try a bacon fried and it... More

Friendly and good service every time, and the food is consistently good. I have only had the beef brisket and marinated chicken breast, so I can't speak for anything else, but both are very good. The atmosphere is good for dining in; take out can be kind of slow, so call ahead.

A great go to place for BBQ and Catfish! You get LOTS of food for a decent price! It can be loud, but it's because it's a huge open space. Salad: get dressing on the side or they douse it! Drinks served in fun mason jars. Red white checkered plastic tablecloth and rustic decor- laid back downhome cooking!

Thank ThankfulElf
