AAA Inspector Notes
House-made sauces and smoked meats are the signature items. They also offer amazing burgers, po'boys, Cajun favorites and breakfast on weekends. Even the sides are ridiculously delicious; try the jalapeño cream corn or the fried pickles. Each table is served an assortment of sauces to utilize; my personal favorite is the “Alabama White.” Upon entry you will see the Wall of Fame, featuring a few photos of people who were able to consume the "World Famous Adam Emmenecker Challenge." You'll also notice the Wall of Shame, which has exponentially more photos. The challenge is to eat all of a 5-pound, gargantuan meal in 15 minutes. If you can do it then you get your meal free, your photo on the Wall of Fame, and finally a free T-shirt.
