Barbecue done right. It is definitely all one can expect, delicious dishes, unpretentious location. The managers and crew are extremely friendly and dedicated to their business and customers. Worth a try, for sure!

Very nice bar-be-que. Modest facilities which is typical for a small bar-be-que place. The pulled pork was done just right. Portions were not as large as we expected. Overall we liked it and will stop there again.

It's definitely not the most beautiful and clean place. It's kind of hidden in the back of a minimart station. Small parking lot. But a decent amount of seats, some good friendly service and some yummy BBQ. Prices were a little higher than I was expecting.

Great food, great staff, the best sauce! The fries are always fresh. I had the potato salad and it was some of the best I've ever had. We love this place and always come from out of town. BTW the "chopped pork" is alot like pulled pork! We will be back!

Great food, good average price. However, I noticed sometimes they are not consistent with the taste. I guess the chef changes - ordered the wings and some days it was yummy, and some too much salt. But I still keep going back for more..

Tucked in behind the local package store is an outstanding, truly southern and genuine BBQ joint that will make you wonder why you haven't heard more about this place. The more than enough portion of chopped pork sandwich(mine was with slaw) and Brunswick stew was tasty and beyond satisfying. Service was quick and easy. Atmosphere was wonderful. You enjoy your...

The spare ribs are outstanding. If you are really, really hungry get a rack of these bad boys. I swear a few of the individual ribs were a half pound each. Definitely had some to take home. Get sauce on the side and try their hot BBQ sauce.

if you love meat (incl. meat as side dish), then this is definitely the right place. The only con is that your clothes need to go to the laundry service after the visit (smoke is in the air...)

It's Georgia so authentic smoked BBQ Is expected and this restaurant has it. My disappointment is that l spent over $45 for wings and ribs for two people and the slab ribs (not baby back) we received weren't meaty at all, the macaroni had no flavor and seemed to be made with cheese wiz, the greens were just ok and...
