Utilized this restaurant to cater my baby shower. Great service from the beginning. Now I didn't see the restaurant so I can't discuss that part.
I was a late planner and didn't request my order until 2 days before the event. Luckily they were very flexible and available and affordable. I planned for about 30 ppl - the cater menu stated - 1 meat, 2 traditional sides at $6.50/pp. That's the cheapest catering option I had found while doing my research - so I got the fried chicken, green beans, and rice and gravy. Added a fruit tray for $30. So you can do the math for this party. With this you received - cutlery, plates, napkins, that food is wrapped in aluminum foil like bins, jug of sweet and unsweet tea or whatever option you want. The only thing about this place is the hours of operation 11am - 2:30 pm. I had never eaten here before, only found it due to google search. The food was picked up to avoid delivery fee - it was hot on arrival and plentiful. The chicken was really good and the fruit tray was really good. The green beans and rice and gravy looked and smelled good but lacked flavor. The tea was good of course - nobody drunk any unsweet tea in hindsight I should have anticipated that. I have no complaints overall considering that the prices were really fair and the phone customer service was prompt and pleasant.

My wife and I have eaten lunch here a few times, last time was today 7/1/13. My wife likes the fish, and I usually eat the BBQ pork, with rice and hash. Unfortunately I really don't care a lot for their hash, to me it has an "off" taste to it, the brown gravy is better. The fried chicken and veggies are fairly good, and it is a buffet, so the price is fair. Of the BBQ places I've eaten around town (and we have several) I would rate it probably #4 on my list of favorites.

GREAT fried chicken, great mustard sauce for the BBQ and really good sides and desserts. Plus it is a REALLY good value and the atmosphere is even pretty nice too!

I would definitely reccomend!

We were recommended this restaurant by the front desk at our hotel. What a surprise it was! I thought the barbecue was excellent and my favorite was the catfish stew and hash! They aren't open very long, only for brunch/very early lunch, so if you want to go, go early. In a very industrial part of the city, not very close to anything else of interested, but about five minutes from the interstate.

Doc's does have good BBQ but I go for the Fried Chicken. It is just perfect, crispy and beyond yummy. The veggies are also good, mac & cheese, beans, salads. They also serve fish and of course their BBQ - two kinds.
They have an unusal desert that is a pudding/cake and all chocolate.

I am sorry they are no longer open at night but if you all would come eat more often maybe they would THANKS.
