Absolutely fabulous brisket and BBQ. Seating is limited so don't plan on just hanging out but the food is divine. Fries are always fresh and hot, hot, hot!

The brisket sandwich and the catfish sandwich were excellent. The fries are some of the best I've ever eaten. The chili had a great taste and unique flavor.

Pulled pork was good, good French fries, corn bread, good baked beans was tasty. Lots of selection of meats. Place was a little hectic, and there was limited seating - but it's worth it. Very, very casual. Is easy to get to, except there is...More

Pulled pork platter was good, sides were fine, pricing fair. But the deep fried pecan pie was most interesting and quite decent although it was a bit shy of pecans, needs a lot more to be outstanding.

My Company has used them many times for events but we have always picked up the food at the restaurant. You can buy any items in big quantities.
