    Went for Gospel brunch and wasn't at all disappointed. The food is so rich you feel the fantastic heart attack coming on, and the mimosas are perfectly flavored and fizzy. The music is insanely good!

    Mac & cheese, sausage, pulled pork, onion rings, sweet potato fries are all awesome! Ribs had a little too much fat on them for my taste, but I'm not much of a meat eater. Overall, awesome dinner!

    Lives up to the hype, son. Although, don't always fall prey to the unlimited meat option, all you really need is a plate.

    Start off the meal with the fried green tomatoes, which are crisp and firm. But make sure to keep your eye on the prize and order the $17.95 all-you-can-eat family-style BBQ dinner. Read more
