What to Order
I started with the fried pickles, which were spears coated with their in-house cornmeal mix. They were some of the best fried pickles that I've ever had!
Other appetizers that looked delicious included the fried green tomatoes and chicken wings.
For my entree, I ordered the famous Loaded Potato. Warning: it is humongous! This dish features a 1-pound Idaho potato loaded with a half pound of house-smoked pulled pork, butter, sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, and diced bacon. It was divine and would be a perfect entree to split (or take home for leftovers!).
They offer a wide array of entrees: ribs, chopped beef brisket, grilled chicken, pork chops, shoulder, and pulled pork.
Sides include smoked cabbage, mac and cheese, pinto beans, hash brown casserole, fried potatoes, cole slaw, greens, cornbread, and many more!
