The service is impeccable and staff is very nice. The food is perfect. Eat the fried chicken, BBQ or stew and you will love it. The best place to grab lunch off I-85.

Skipper Forsyth's has good typical barbecue food -- pork, chicken, sides, etc. Have been there a couple of times. not the best Barbecue in H'son, but good for lunch. Nice portions and reasonable priced. Very plain basic atmosphere.
