What makes your spot unique?
We have been open for over 15 years; for the first ten, we primarily focused on our bbq and grill menu, but for the past 5, we have taken a new, more modern approach and added our chef specials and our bourbon bar, so we really offer something for everyone now. These days bbq with a high-end twist is becoming more and more popular, and we were one of the first in our area to start offering that sort of full service/full menu/full bar in a smokehouse-centric environment.
What dish is the most popular?
Any version of our pulled pork offerings. Fried Green Tomato & Pimento Cheese Burger. Shrimp & Grits and Pulled Pork Nachos.
What dish are you the proudest of?
Usually, whatever is newest to the special sheet. I really enjoy being able to come up with new dishes, and I love experimenting with unique flavors and seasonal local produce. Sometimes it might be as simple as a salad with whatever local fruit is available, or it might be a new pasta dish, a unique and tasty taco, a creative take on a classic sandwich, etc.
It’s my first time at your restaurant, what do you suggest we order?
This is always the hardest question for me because our menu is so big and varied and it really depends on your tastes. If you are going classic bbq I always say the pulled pork sandwich or a bowl of hash and rice. If you want to go for specials, I’d say start with the pulled pork nachos and then whatever the pasta dish is at the moment. I’m a sucker for pasta, so it’s usually one of my favorite things on the menu at any given time.
Where do you love to eat when not at work?
We haven’t done much dining out this year, but one of the few times we did, we really enjoyed Topsoil Kitchen & Market
