Great BBQ and Good Price

The ribs were great and some delicious sides, including the banana pudding! Very laid back casual restaurant with excellent service.

The food was really good but we all ordered at the same time but each got our food 5 to 10 minutes apart. There were so many people there you couldn't even barely walk through. Would be amazing if it had a little more room.

Comes as a side, pint, quart, etc. I usually get a quart to go ($10.90) and they give me a handful of wrapped packets of crackers/ This s tew is ONLY in late fall or winter.

I live here in Athens and I love going to this charming facility. When you walk in, you are often greeted by a line full of people waiting to be granted their generous portion of barbecue or any other delicious dish. Then, finally, it's your turn to order. The staff is so friendly and helpful! They make you feel like... More

We ordered two pulled pork plates, and two sides each on a Sunday afternoon. I had brown sugar green beans, and baked beans. My son had mac n cheese, and chips. The BBQ is good, not real smokey or over seasoned. They had two types of BBQ sauce on the table(one white, one traditional BBQ) both were good by themselves... More

Thanks to the hotel check in staff who recommended we drive down the road a bit to check out this place. We figured when we pulled in the dirt lot full of vehicles that we'd found the right spot. Efficient ordering process keeps the lines moving and it was fun to watch the well organized kitchen staff while we waited.... More
