Excellent pulled pork. Very flavorful and moist. Great array sauces. Good service too. You won’t be disappointed.

If you want different BBQ, this place fits the bill with a variety of unique sandwiches. Unfortunately there are no options on sides--a pretty basic coleslaw and a bag of Lays potato chips. If they develop some side options this place would be a 5.

We enjoyed several of their excellent BBQ pork sandwiches, really enjoying the Alabama mayo inspired sauce. Perhaps they had an erratic service day, slow, but maybe who cares if you're enjoying a few local beers before the delicious grub arrives.
