Pork sandwich was smoky clean and tasty. Sauce is Memphis style and pretty sweet. Mac and cheese was excellent. Plus they have RC on fountain. I was passing through on business but was very satisfied except for the few flys that buzzed around.

Well I had a pulled pork sandwich and collards. The collards were great the pork was good but the sauce was boring. No spicy sauce in the house. Kinda spartan not bad just not great. I would go back, not a bad place just average.
