The amount and the quality were well worth the stop. Did not leave hungry or with a bad taste in the mouth.

I'm a local so have eaten here a few times. Food is consistently good...only thing is that the portions are huge. I think next time I'm ordered a child's plate. Seriously. Never can eat all the food they bring you.

Get the sampler platter - comes with 4 types of meat and 4 sides of your choice. We really liked the brussel sprouts, okra fries, mac & cheese, and fries (seasoning on those were great!).

I travel a fair amount and I am always in search of good ribs. These were high quality pork ribs. The sides were great and service too.
