Both the barbecue and the chicken are very tasty. My preference is the fried chicken which is crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. The restaurant itself is bare bones so I usually do take out.

We went here hungry and as my four year old grandson said "I'm finished with starving!" Good BBQ and fried chicken. Excellent sides and everything was hot and fresh. Prices were very good and service was very prompt.

Stop the car and park. Go inside and get some chicken and or BBQ. So good, you will come back again and again. Hot, juicy, and yummy. BBQ Carolina style vinager based, the cole slaw is Terrific​. Clean bathrooms too.
