We've eaten here half a dozen times or so and have always left happy. Fried fish, slaw and hushpuppies best we've found locally. Service is always extra friendly, with a smile. BBQ and sides gave been consistently good. Try pork BBQ egg rolls for something different.

Some of the best pulled pork I have ever eaten. All the sides are delicious as well. One hidden gem they have are the BBQ egg rolls. You won't be disappointed !!

We travel widely seeking good BBQ places. In Georgia, the state rated #1 in the nation for good BBQ, this place is at the top. Rather than one small eatery, this place has two log cabin-like buildings (one for take out and one for eating in) plus a spacious outdoor area for eating at cheerful turquoise, umbrella-ed picnic tables and...

My family and I love this place and we eat here maybe once a month. I love the sandwiches, the portions are big but not so big you have to take 3 days to eat it all. I've never really been a fan of the ribs, I'm not sure what it is but they just don't sit well with me!... More

This is one of the best BBQ places we have visited. The service was excellent the atmosphere was very casual. But the BBQ Exceptional. We got the rib plate and could not believe the smoke flavor on the very tender ribs. Will definitely make the short detour off I20 again.

I love the BBQ chicken! It is great! The best thing, though, is the BBQ egg rolls! Though, they should get a little more room for customers.

Absolutely the best barbecue in the area, the meat is competition quality cooked to perfection and the sauces aren't bad either. I was recently recommended the catfish and kinda reluctantly ordered it, I was very impressed, this guy knows what he is doing on the smoker and in the kitchen. Barbecue egg rolls make a great appetizer also. Keep doin... More
