This place is amazing. I'm not a huge fan of BBQ but I love everything I have tried here. I usually get the pulled pork plate with potato salad and collard greens. The potato salad here is a must-try - it is the best potato salad I have ever had. The staff is super friendly as well.

Amazing food! I love the free pickles they were so good. I had the BBQ chicken quarter and it wasn't dry at all, it had a lot of flavor and the BBQ sauced just added to it. I will definitely be going back because it was so GOOD! The rest of the table had the pulled pork and said it was delicious as well.
