we were in Rockdale and saw this on TripAdvisor. Off beaten path but easy to find. Worth every bit of effort. BBQ and catfish are the fares. BIG portions, really good, priced reasonable, everyone in the place friendly and really hustling, and the place was SPOTLESS. One quirk that I like...drinks served in large chilled "tin cups". Neat idea. Will... More

Their hours are the only complaint I have...they're that good. Don't go in expecting a large selection but you can go in knowing that whichever plate you select will be delicious and will "sho'nuff" fill you up.

BBQ is Soul food! Ribs and brisket were outstanding. The beans tasted like my mom was in the backing them. The owner even toured us through the bbq pits and crawfish cooking area. Great big room for large gatherings. Good people.

Unbelievably good food. Best candied yams ever, cabbage was perfect. Husbands mac and cheese was gone in a minute. I go two meals from he size of he portions, husband cleaned his plate.Limited days and hours but worth any extra effort.

I wouldn't share this special, delicious, home cooking because I was afraid I couldn't get a seat on my next visit but they told me they were expanding so.... right now when weather good they do have a outdoor area (peaceful and attractive that you can enjoy if you like. Parking also in back. Limited hours.

If you are looking for meals like you may have grown up on, this is the place to go. BBQ Ribs, Chicken and Dumplings, Meat Loaf, Catfish, Greens, Cabbage, Butter Beans, Sweet Candied Yams, Mac and Cheese, Corn Bread, etc. This is literally meals like your grandmother prepared if you grew up in the south.
