This is not a chain restaurant! The owner cooks with pride and purpose! The food is fresh and delicious. The sweet sauce was my favorite. Don't leave without trying a dessert.

The BBQ is always exceptional and the Brunswick stew is a must. They are open Thursday - Saturday. This really makes one look forward to Thursday's.
