2:30 lunch. Young waitress was very nice and polite. The smoked sausage sandwich, red beans and rice, baked beans, slaw, and BBQ pizza we're really good. Only negative was ribs. Tasted like baked instead of grilled or smoked and no seasoning.More

After a tour of JD we stopped in for a late lunch around 3pm. BBQ pizza was yummy and my friend raved about the red beans and rice. It was busy but the server was attentive and the food was hot. Very good.

We love visiting this friendly place whenever we are near Lynchburg. I have enjoyed everything on the menu. They have THE BEST pecan pie I have ever had and the friendliest owners and staff. Casual and family friendly.
