More About Us

The answer to your first question, or at least most folks, is how did we come up with the name?
Simply put, my wife Kim, and I have five children.

I started becoming the family grill meister when I was about 12 and built my first pit in North Carolina when I was 17. I learned a lot at the original Sonny’s in Gainesville, Florida where I am from and country folks in VA, NC, and GA as well as many others throughout the south.

As I grilled and smoked nearly every meat you can think of I learned what worked and what did not. Over the years as I barbecued for charity and church events as well as fundraisers, family, friends, weddings, etc. Many friends and barbecue fans told me I needed to open a restaurant.

So here we are.

Our philosophy is simple; serve competition worthy barbecue,every day. Our sides are made from scratch and have been family tested. The sauce took me approximately 10 years to design. It’s slightly sweet with a back end bite that does not overwhelm your palate. My family and I thank you for enjoying our food and I hope that my years of experience and our love of creating the best barbecue and sides you may have ever had keeps you coming back for more.

Thanks so much for the opportunity to serve you!!
