Underwood's Cafeteria is one of those places. While it may not look like much from the outside, we promise you're in for a real culinary treat once you step inside.

Underwood’s got its start during the Depression in the 1930s. By the early 40s, M.E. Underwood had built a small white roadside shack, the first of what would become a chain of Take-Out BBQ places.
