Husband and I took out from this place recently and went with a big combo pack that had all the meats, sides, bread. We enjoyed everything we tried. Would go back again.

The brisket was dry and flavorless. Might not have been very fresh. Beans were very good. Service was fair - not terrible but certainly not good. Overall, a poor effort. We would not return.

Our favorites are the chicken tenders, BBQ chicken, and catfish! They make a wonderful grilled chicken salad; the meat is brushed with BBQ sauce. Everyone is really friendly.
