My dining companion, an area local enjoyed the meal immensely. She remarked that after the visit that she would surely return. As for me, I enjoyed the delicious sweet cornbread and the spicy flavoring of the black-eyed peas. Unfortunately, that is where the word "love" stops for me. I enjoyed the apple cake which is wrapped in plastic wrap at the "to go" counter. It is sweet, moist and cinnamon seems to be prominent.
True authentic barbeque lovers may enjoy this place. I understand the strong vinegar taste in the pulled pork is classic, but it does not win me over. The ribs were good but not tender. The collard greens have a strong vinegar taste. I asked several people around me their thoughts on the cuisine. Everyone at neighboring tables loves the food, so this I submit to a matter of taste. Know that this is an extremely popular establishment with a huge catering office next door. Obviously, Andy Nelson's is the people's choice.
Atmosphere: Casual, wipes availabe at tables, picnic tables outside the establishment.
Price: Average Menu items is under $12 but some items are priced at $20.
