Love the brisket and smoked sweet potato; however, the smoked wings are the best. My wife and I just love this place. Sometimes the service is a little so, but the food makes up for it.

Brisket was overdone and tasted like pot roast, no smoke ring on meat. I was disappointed based on what I heard about this place. Beans and Cole slaw were nothing exceptional. Maybe I went on an off day.

Great burgers , great service but brisket here is amazing. Sometimes can get little crowded at lunch time. Food comes fast and wait usually not long.

This is a really great, family owned & operated restaurant. Don't let the strip mall deter you. They serve some of the finest soul food and smoked meats in the city.

I saw this place mentioned in an article in the paper about great burgers, but when I looked on their website, I saw that they also do tamales and I am a tamale junkie! Long story short, they often run out of tamales, especially on...More

Delicious food. Best ribs in all of the south. We travelled New Orleans to Nashville and back and went on the way north and on the way back south. The sample Platter is the way to go!
