“Complete with all the fixins, this southern comfort food is sure to satisfy any appetite. Their recipes have been gathered over three generations of the Proffitt family with strong roots in the south and its tradition of BBQ. The whole family can experience hickory smoked barbecue the way it should be!”

“Ya'll this is a local staple. If you have seen the building with the hotdog, hamburger, french fries, and big tea on it go here now. They have the best fast food around and honestly they need to go national! My favorite thing to get here is at breakfast, they're called cheddar rounds and they are heavenly!”
