Friendly service, tasty brisket, juicy chicken, mouth watering fried green tomatoes, flavorful potato salad and fabulous onion rings. Highly recommend this "Exit 102 for BBQ!" quick stop off of I-75.

Enjoyable dining experience right off of I-75. Indoor and outdoor seating options. Server was friendly. Fried pickles and fried green tomatoes were a highlight for us. Make sure you put your pin on the map while you are there. Definitely worth a stop!

In researching places to visit while on Rt. 75 between TN and FL, this restaurant was mentioned. Only yards from the highway at exit 102. Very good brisket and fried green tomatoes. Pulled pork was overly chopped. Too bad it wasn't open when we passed...More

I ordered takeout after being on the road all day and reading the other reviews. The ribs we’re probably the most tender and flavorful ribs I’ve had. Their distinctive smokey taste was accompanied by a tangy, peppery sauce. The beans were also very good. The...More
