Love their greens and grits. The pork is the side to the the main dish -- the greens n grits! Don't pass on the banana pudding either!

Had the chicken filled potato. OMG!!! Delish. And if you're having a budget wedding, this thing will feed 6 people, including your two new brothers-in-law, who've never been full in their lives. Biz associate had the pork. These potatoes are terrific!

After a long, long day of working at [REDACTED], I was ready for my second job--wrangling children back on the homestead. When I called my wife to let her know I was en route on Overton Road, hurtling through the Tiny Kingdom, I could hear the desperate hunger in her voice even over the keening wails of our toddler.

Love coming here and convinced some new neighbors to give it a try. They were a little skeptical about the wings preferring fried wings but they are solid fans of Saw's now. The red a white BBQ sauce on their smoked wings will make a believer out of you too.

I wanted to know what everyone was talking about so I stopped in for lunch. I ordered the smoked wings and fried okra. The okra was whole but still delicious. The wings were covered in sauce and I had to keep myself from licking my fingers. I saw a plate of what I heard was Pork and Greens and it... More

Fantastic food, I don't think you can go wrong with any of their dishes. The wings are great but too much for an entree but perfect as a shareable appetizer.

Let me start by saying I don't think I've ever had soul food, but I'm glad I have now. The meal is a plate full of cheese grits topped with a bed of perfectly cooked greens and a big chunk of fork-tender, lean pork on top of the greens and covered in fried onion straws. It was amazing. The atmosphere... More

Meal was very good, sides were excellent, pulled pork was tender yet slightly dry. Staff was very friendly and service was very good.
