This is a small, clean place with personality. The ribs tasted very good, with just on the verge of being too tough but I got to say I tried it. Glad I stopped for the experience but nothing to scream about.

Extremely slow service, ribs just so so, coleslaw was yucky, onion rings not good at all and expensive, hubby's pulled pork sandwich was ok. Wouldn't recommend and I'm sorry we stopped here to eat.

This restaurant is small inside but it also has outside seating. The half chicken special was cooked perfectly and the prices were pretty cheap.
