The family loves this place! Owner is hands on and frequents the dining area to check on the patrons. The portions are large and very tasty. Our son likes the brisket burger, the girls enjoy the brisket and you can't go wrong with the ribs or pulled pork. Sweet potato casserole, fries, okra, slaw,.... all of the sides are outstanding

I went today 4/2, the restaurant on the outside looks terrible. Thankfully, that was the only complaint I have. Both owners were there and very friendly, seemed to be great people. I got the big boy platter, my wife and I split it, and could have fed a third, easily. We just ate it again for supper and still have leftovers. The ribs were wonderful, beef brisket was very good aswell. The chopped pork, was good, not fatty like some BBQ joints. The chicken was very good, when it was brought out, the owner told us he was sorry the smoker got a little hot and the chicken was blacker than normal and he wanted to ensure we liked it. It was juicy tender and all the meat just feel apart cooked to perfection. The restaurant is built very nicely on the inside. They half 2 halves, one side is very bright, be and a cafe style dinne, while the other is, more of a bar with dimmer lighting, a pool table dart board and arcade game. We'll be back, every time we are in that area.

Heard a lot about the place
Ordered the sampler platter

Needs to be on a larger platter
Perception is the plate is to
Small for the amount of
Money you are spending on
The platter and the sizes of the
Sides need to come up
A size reduce it to two larger sides or 4 small ones


Compared to sonnys
And the sauce does not taste
Homemade you can use
A pre made sauce as a base
Then make it your own

You order then sit down
And they bring it to you
And you eat with plastic
Ware
Would like real silver ware
You can have some on hand
And knives if you can't
Real silverware

Pork was chopped more than
Pulled the Ribbs and chicken
We're good

Give it a try
Support local

Looks and smells like a dump on the outside, but clean and welcoming once you enter. Excellent food at reasonable prices. Make it a stop after visiting the state park.
