The Sausage Shoppe now offers an all-you-can-eat lunch, and that’s yet another reason to visit one of the region’s truly unique barbecue restaurants.

Where other restaurants specialize in brisket, the Chambers family’s restaurant specializes in housemade beef and pork sausage.

It comes in spicy or mild. Or try their distinctive smoked chicken.

The sausage isn’t on the all-you-can-eat $10.99 soul food buffet Tuesdays through Thursdays at lunch, but there are plenty of other good choices.

One recent weekday, the choices in the serving line included smothered pork chops, beef tips or smothered chicken, along with greens, sweet potatoes or mac-and-cheese.
