Best BBQ In Town

306 BBQ has the best food in town. Everything from BBQ to roasted chicken. There are a ton of side items and the sauce isn't too spicy or too sweet. They are so good they catered my wedding!!

306 has great smoked meats. Their sides are excellent and not typical of a BBQ restaurant. They have a good smoked chicken salad. Also, they serve beer and wine.

stopped here while traveling and was pleasantly surprised. This was a casual, local spot with good food and cheap prices. Have had this white sauce in Alabama before--not sure what it is (not bad), but not BBQ sauce.

Glad I checked trip advisor to find this gem ! Very good BBQ .. Couple miles off interstate but worth it! Don't miss out on the broccoli casserole ! And try the white BBQ sauce .. As others have posted , order at the counter and sit down with your number..

This time I tried their 3 meat combo plate "The 306" and had pulled pork, ribs and Brisket. While the ribs and pulled pork were very good, the Brisket was Fantastic... More

Stopped for lunch while passing through on 65. The food is fresh, homemade, and delicious! We tried the pulled pork - it is juicy and the sauce is mild and only slightly sweet. Not my favorite sauce but I think it is probably made there and it is quite good! BBQ sauce is a very personal thing - you won't... More
