Bama BBQ style can vary considerably by locale. This was pulled pork that was bland. Sides helped but then I didn't stop for sides.

Ribs were mushy. Pulled pork was flavorless. Turkey was just so so. The restaurant was crowded but just wasn't good or great BBQ.

The food is so good when you leave your already planning your next trip to go back. The bbq sauce is delicious and the potatoe salad is wonderful. Baked beans are also very good.

Basically trying to spot something from the road that caught our eye. We literally wandered on to the 306 BBQ while headed back to our hotel. So, it is easy to locate,... More

Very good pulled pork. Cooked without being smothered in sauce. Red and white sauce is available on the table. Good selections of sides that tastes homemade. Nice clean atmosphere with friendly service.
