AAA Inspector Notes
Classic. It's a step back in time just visiting this little town, the self-proclaimed collards capital, but you'll feel you've gone through a time portal when you taste the old-fashioned Southern food. Pit-cooked whole-hog barbecue, fried chicken, Brunswick stew and Carolina-specialty chicken and pastry are the main dishes, but the sides—collard greens (grown on their farm), sweet potato biscuits, corn sticks, banana pudding and more—are what take me back to my grandma's kitchen. For an extra indulgence, try the fried pork skin. Daily specials are offered, including seafood on Friday nights. Don't forget the sweet tea—very sweet, that is. And don't forget cash—credit cards are not accepted.
$5-$10, cash only
