    Whatever negative effects on the body are outweighed by the positive effects on the soul. I got the pork bbq with sweet potato and Mac and cheese.

    Home style BBQ served in styrofoam boxes. Nothing detracts from the deliciousness of the food. The brisket, macaroni and sweet potatoes cannot be missed.

    El lugar no es elegante en lo absoluto pero el sabor de la comida y la calidad es fuera de este mundo, altamente recomendado en comida BBQ (Southern Food).
