This is an awesome BBQ place! We always get a hash and rice plate and a Big T dinner plate. We were not disappointed! It is a Carolina mustard style pork BBQ, well worth the try if you haven't had that style! I believe they...More

Being from the Northwest, not many places have this leafy green vegetable. The barbecue was superb, but the collards were delicious! When we pulled into this small shopping center, we weren't sure, but you can not judge this book by its cover! I would highly...More
