It’ll be tough to exercise self-control when you whiff the Southern scents wafting out of the kitchen, where vats of baked beans, sweet yams and collard greens simmer away. The ’cue may not be smoky like some spots in town, but the chicken is juicy, and the rib tips are finger-lickin’. Grab a spot at one of the two tables to enjoy bootlegged horror movies on the suspended TV, and don’t forget the sweet-potato pie.
