Space is ideal for any informal occasion as it is very casual and flexible. You can go out on a lunch break and spend it here or have a celebratory dinner with families and friends. Just make sure that you call in advance for a reservation as it usually gets pretty crowded in the evenings.

They serve good barbecue, but the ribs and the pulled pork are worth trying, especially on the first visit, to seal the deal and ensure that you will come back for more. Aside from the meat, the fried chicken sandwich and the hoecake are also some of the restaurant’s most recommended dishes.
