"White Swan Bar-B-Q & Fried Chicken had the best spot in the house if you came in to the main entrance of the battle.  The southern hospitality from the staff at the event and smiles as you approached them were spot on!  Their pulled pork with coleslaw was very good!  The pork was juicy, flavorful, and tangy from the coleslaw that’s placed neatly on top!  The twang from the coleslaw and the saltiness from the pork was a great combo."
