- Cozy atmosphere. The service is immediate, and the food is simply delicious- homemade style. Very reasonably prized, as well. Worth a visit. – Erwin, Yahoo! Local
- Great BBQ sauce is the key. The pork was excellent! The beef was a little fatty, but good. Fries are awesome (cajun rice not so much) and the rolls are to die for. I'll be back! – Eric S., Yelp
