Food scene

If you are into spicy foods this place is a must visit. Also if you're into not so spicy foods, just go with honey style or any of the other menu options. The spice on your fried chicken can get as extreme as you think you want and you can wash it all down with a Cheerwine. The mac and cheese balls and sweet potato casserole are personal favorites.
