I had heard good reviews about the JC location so checked it out. I was concerned when we walked in on a Saturday evening and it was 1/3 full. The sticky floors also gave me pause. But the smoker in back gave me hope. The positive was that the smoked pork was good. The negatives were that they buried it in a sweet sauce, and the Mac and cheese side was dried out and lacking flavor, like Kraft out of a box baked too long. Phil's Dream Pit has them beat by a mile.

The BB Cheesey is fantastic, a grilled cheese sandwich with brisket and bacon. Who couldn't love that? The fried potatoes and onions were very disappointing, no flavor and very mushy. The collard greens were cold as well. Also had the philly cheese brisket which was a good choice.

The wings are smoked, fried for crispness and grilled and then tossed in your choice of sauce. I got regular bbq and they were amazing. They'd probably be amazing with any sauce! Also ordered the mac and cheese (not bad) and the coleslaw (loved). The sign outside looks like it'd be sketchy, but NOT AT ALL! Must go if in JC!
