    If you want a taste of some good meat options. Try the double or triple platter that comes with two sides. It will fill you up and gives you several options. Definitely try all 5 homemade sauces too.

    Blasting this place. If you offer $3 Bloody Marys make sure you don't run out of the ingredients. Also be sure to let me order another drink for $3 and not $7.50

    Dog-friendly. The server brought out a dog bowl full of water, made Bella feel like she was included the whole time. Affordable too! Two lunch entrees, two drinks, one add-on salad and a dessert: $30.

    The meat was tender and flavorful and our appetizer of fried green tomatoes were good but all the sauces were spicy, the Mac n cheese was bland and the fried okra was nothing special.

    There meats aren't irradiated, meaning no radiation is in the meat. Huge plus if you ask me as most meat contains radiation, seriously look it up!
