We have been to this restaurant twice and I'm sure we will return many more times. Conveniently located on Highway 72 East in Athens, AL, this restaurant parking lot is almost always busy. The food is VERY good. The service is friendly and efficient. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is relaxed. Their stuffed backed potatoes are EXCELLENT. If... More

We took a chance on this restaurant based on TA reviews and I am SO GLAD we did. The food here was amazing. The pulled pork sandwich and the ribs..to die for. The mac and cheese...YUM!! The apple crisp thing tasted like my grandma made it. And the banana pudding....YOU MUST TRY IT. My husband got it as a side... More

We moved up to athens from mississippi which has pretty good bbq in my opinion. Went to 306 and had the ribs. I'm not a big fan of ribs bc I can't stand 10 tons of sauce on there. Their ribs here fall off the bone and are dry seasoned very very nicely. I don't have a clue what their... More

Super friendly service. BBQ was good but I wouldn't rate it as best in US. Sides were actually boring and generic tasting, especially the Mac and Cheese. The food prices were good but a plastic cup of beer cost me $4.50, a real ripoff.

Someone invited me here for lunch and I had doubts but quickly found out that I shouldn't have. I got the rib sandwich with mac n cheese and brown sugar green beans. All the food was so good. I liked it so much that I took my family there that same evening for dinner. We all got rib sandwiches and... More

We really enjoyed our meal. The place is low key - laid back - and worth a return visit soon! We had chicken, green beans (which were really tasty), Mac & Cheese, pork, and of course banana pudding. Stop by and give it a try. Staff needs just a little B12 to perk them up. No big deal as we... More

We visit 306 BBQ frequently as it is close to home. We are never disappointed. I've had chicken, pork, turkey, and ribs. Meat has a nice smokey flavor and is always moist. The sides are tasty. Especially like Mac and cheese and banana pudding. Even the salads are good. They have yuengling on tap.

Ordered a half slab of ribs. They were wunnerful, and plentiful. I ended up taking 3 of the slab (full slab is 12) home for a meal the next day. Even microwaved after being in the refrigerator 24 hours, they were still good. Their potato salad is very good, pinto beans are good, baked beans are delicious, although I have... More

The Wife and I ordered food here on our way to Destin, Fl. because it was not a chain restaurant and had good reviews . The pulled pork was good. The Mac and Cheese and Slaw were very tasty as well. The service left a little to be desired as it was not very friendly and wasn't exactly professional. The... More

While traveling south on 65, we were looking for unique or original restaurants. Found 306 on trip advisor and decided to try it out. We were not disappointed! Great place with great food! We had ribs, chicken and pulled pork, it was all very tasty!
