As far as food quality and flavor this is really a 5-star review. The fish fry is easily the best flavor around and the coleslaw is unique and delicious. I only feel like I need to deduct one-star because, for the price, the serving is a little bit small compared to what you get elsewhere. The barbecue on the other hand has always been a generous serving and is also delicious.
