“Their 13 honey BBQ wings are especially out of this world. Aside from being cooked to perfection, the wings are also juicy and the sauce ratio is spot on. If you are in the mood for dinner, a combo plate with pulled pork, brisket, whipped sweet potatoes and BBQ fried rice is the go-to for many locals here. you could see the smoke ring on the meat on the brisket. This combo comes with a side of cornbread. Remember to come hungry because the portion is gigantic.”
