I came here for my 42nd birthday with my husband and two friends. I found the food very well balanced, our waitstaff was attentive but not obstrusive. The lavender honey creme brulee is beautiful. All in all, it was a delightful evening.

I have to start by explaining that my dad came here when he was a little boy and it's where we always went when we came home to visit my grandmother. So for me, this defines what barbecue is supposed to be BUT it different from every other style of barbecue out there. It's very tasty. Let me put it this way... I'm a vegetarian and I always get a pork barbecue sandwich when I come here, with hot slaw. Make sure that you add plenty of the barbecue sauce that they have sitting on the table. The baked beans and coleslaw are also yummy. A couple of years ago they renovated but managed to keep the old school charm. I love this place.

The atmosphere is relaxing and friendly, with high ceilings, lots of natural light, wifi and plenty of outlets. More importantly, these folks take coffee seriously. It's perfectly brewed every time.
