Our Pork Barbeque, Ribs, and Beef Brisket are prepared just like in the old days in a “Pit” cooked over hickory and oak wood,we literally have people come in from a mile away claiming the smoke brought them in! The way we smoke is so you can taste the intense smokey flavor as well as smell the hickory aromas while enjoying your meal. We also offer Smoked BBQ Chicken and smothered pork chops simmered over a homemade country style gravy. But we don’t stop there. We have a variety of fresh fish such as Flounder, Catfish, Whiting, Trout and Shrimp prepared when you order it, not just sitting around waiting for you!
