    The sampler platter is a must! Includes the BEST pulled pork and the delicious baker's white sauce. Can't go wrong with everything on there. We're from out of state and will be back next year!

    I'm from Memphis, and I must say the pulled pork is excellent. Not too crazy about the potato salad, (a bit sweet), but overall very good, worth a second visit!

    Best turnip greens in town. Since you're so close to Dreamcakes, stop and get a cupcake! Or an oatmeal cream pie... They'll change your life!
