If you visit here, you must eat at Leathas. Originally a Columbia business, Leathas BBQ is unmatched in quality and taste around here. The boneless beef ribs are my favorite. And, their original bbq sauce is worth the stop. Dont miss this meal.

Pretty sure not. It's illegal to sell a game animal at a restaurant. But you can bet it would be good.
