We stopped by for take out while in town. The smoked chicken was really good, hubby enjoyed the bbq plate and son raved about the bbq sandwich. Lots of side choices. Really friendly and quick service which made our tummies happy.

Enjoyed an excellent dinner and both enjoyed the barbecue. Loved the hush puppies. The portions were quite large. Looked like this was a very popular local, family restaurant. Would recommend this and would return if back in the area.
