Emma's BBQ Restaurant Review

: Emma's BBQ gets its name from the Thomas family matriarch, whose love and secret recipes are carried on here. Barbecue dinners (pork ribs/pulled pork, sliced beef/brisket, chicken, beef hot links) are served with cornbread or sliced bread and choice of two sides (bakes beans, macaroni and cheese, greens, yams, potato salad, coleslaw). Sandwiches and homemade desserts (sweet potato pie, peach cobbler) are also available.
