I have had both the brisket and chicken here. Both were very good. Good flavor and the chicken was moist not dried out. In addition the sides are very good, not to mention being from the south they have sweet tea.

Attention to quality and taste is outstanding! The selection and varying menu items is amazing, all are exceptional including the side dishes. The crowds gather early especially on Friday's. Fairly priced and with good sized portions.
