Went to this restaurant with my wife for the first-time. The restaurant was packed with people and we heard great reviews as soon as we entered the door. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The food was great and portion sizes were great for the price. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good southern barbeque.

We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Bbq sauceis just ok, but the beef brisket was tender and good. Coleslaw was a no go for me. Really enjoyed the cheddar biscuits. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating.

Went with my husband and kids this past Sunday for a late lunch. Walked in and the hostess completely ignored us. I asked if we could have a booth and she said, yea in a minute, and continued to try and find another employee. Finally, we were sat, by someone else. When the biscuits were brought to us, they were... More

I ate there for the first time last week and enjoyed the food and service very much, Waitress was friendly and attentive, food was very good and prices reasonable. We got in and out in a very short amount of time, without feeling hurried, even though they were busy. Will definitely return,

South Carolina BBQ is all about the vinegar and mustard and this place does it right. The pulled pork sandwich was lights-out. I took another 2 with me when I left and bought some sauce for good measure.

Have been there many times over at least 5 years and never disappointed in the food. Service is usually very good as well. Whether salad, BBQ, chicken, catfish, or just veggie plate. Love the collard greens & black eyed peas. And never go without the corn biscuits- could eat those 24/7.

First time here. We sat on the patio for lunch. I had the Lunch Mac and Cheese with Pork on top. Very tasty. Hubby had the BBQ Turkey Sandwich and enjoyed it. The service was very efficient. We would go back.
