While driving through, we saw a parking lot full of cars and decided to see if customer count would be a measurement of good food? We had great pork sandwiches, beans and fried ocra. We will be back. Highly recommend.

Been here a couple time while traveling thru Florida. Meat is always very tender and seasoned well. Love the varieties of BBQ sauce. Green beans taste like they were poured out of a can. Bread is good.

If you blink while driving through on Rt 301, you might miss this old-time gem. So, look carefully and pull in. It's worth the stop. Been here a couple of times. Always good, especially the sides according to my wife. My only suggestion would be...More
