Our Story

     IT ALL STARTED with a Big Green Egg smoker and our passion for entertaining friends and family.  One egg became two, and after repeated requests from friends to provide barbecue for their special events, our Atlanta-based catering business was born.  A trailered competition pit smoker was added as the business grew, which was soon followed by another 500-pound capacity commercial smoker.

     "When are you going to open a restaurant?" became the battle cry of our customers.   After snowballing growth from customer referrals, we decided the time was right to open our first restaurant and that Kim's hometown of Anderson was the right place to do it.  

     Thank you for giving us the opportunity to fulfill our dream.  We will strive to serve you the best barbecue, sides and desserts with friendly service in a fun atmosphere.   We appreciate your support and look forward to serving you in the days and years to come.
