    On Sunday night they do a "Sunday Dinner." $24 per person buys you Biscuits, deviled eggs, salad, a meat selection (per person) and 3 sides to share amongst the table. Dessert included too. Amazing.

    The pork belly sandwich with pickled green tomato and pork rinds was Fourgasmic. The sandwich had the perfect portion of tender rendered belly, slaw dressing, tomato, and cracklin's.
