Good basic BBQ – I went here expecting simple bbq, and I got exactly that (which is a good thing). Both my father and I ordered the chicken and ribs combo. The pulled chicken looked bland but it was surprisingly tasty, and the bbq ribs tender. I ordered the coleslaw and green beans as my sides; both yummy. The green beans were different in a good way..tarty or a little vinegary, but I really enjoyed them. This place is definitely a repeater. Food came quickly, and the place was clean. Oh and the cornbread was really good; it had kernals of corn in it!
Inexpensive barbecue is the main draw at this reliable Southeastern chain. – In Short
