“We ate at your place today and we were truly impressed.  We were returning to Southern Cal from a trip to wine country.  We just stopped in by chance to get a snack. What a surprise!!! The fried pig skins were amazing.  My wife and I are African American Southerners and we grew up eating skins and we all agree that for the four seventy plus year old in the group, those were the best skins we have ever tasted.  From a Texas boy the brisket was outstanding, and the chicken was moist and very well seasoned. The pulled pork was to die for.
I can’t fight Los Angeles traffic and drive an addition 6 hours to reach your place however, we all agree we will stop at your place to eat every time we drive through Patterson.”
