This has, hands down, the best, crispiest skin, barbeque chicken in the world, with your choice of 3-4 sauces, but the original is the best. I eat there mostly at lunch for takeaway, and almost always get the chicken plate, for about $8, which is 1/2 a bird roasted nice on the pit with your choice of sauce on the side, and 2 sides---I always get the Brunswick Stew, and the BBQ beans, but the slaw and the onion rings are pretty good, too. If Joy is there you probably will get a hug---don't you take advantage of her, or I will come and get you! Anyways she got engaged not too long ago, so......
Great BBQ and great atmosphere----recommended highly.

Favorite Dish: chicken plate with stew and beans, original.
