As far as I am concerned, this is the ONLY place to eat in Selma. Me and mine are in Selma several times a year for school sports and look forward to eating here. And EVERYTHING on the menu is good, you can't go wrong.

This was one of our very worst ever dining experiences ever! The Barbeque was thinly sliced funky tasting pork and the sauce was mostly vinegar. It does seem to be popular with the home crowd The waitress knew everyone,
