We used Trip Advisor to pick the place. We all wanted some wings and they were great. Prices were very reasonable. We will definitely return.

Kind of a hole in the wall place, but decent food. Our order "got lost" and they were kind of rude when we asked where our food was (the others in our group were halfway through their meal). Finally got our food, which some of it was messed up. The pork and chicken were okay, not the best we've had.... More

Pork and chicken were good, but the ribs were outstanding! Among the best i have ever had.The sides were great as well such as the brown sugar green beans and banana pudding.

If you like BBQ that has a great smokey flavor, and not sauce, this is the place to go! Gracious, their menu is loaded with yummy BBQ smoked items. The smoked turkey is divine, as is the pulled pork! Their side dish of baked apples is so mouth mouthwatering, and their banana pudding just begs you to eat more. We... More

This restaurant consistently serves good food. As a result it has a lot of customers, especially for lunch on Sundays.My frustration is that we are not able to get there early on Sundays and after a few minutes of serving plates, they begin running out of items. They never cook enough squash casserole on Sundays (one of their specials on... More

Great pork barbeque but don't forget the chicken and all the fixings. Great place to create a whole meal for take out for the family. Whatever you purchase don't forget the banana pudding.

"I like Pig Butts and I can not lie!" I remember 306 BBQ from a previous trip and built a return visit into our itinerary for our group. BBQ worth the trip. Great ribs, pulled pork, brisket and more. The sides are equally great. Nice selection. Great sweet and unsweetened tea. Our entire group loved the filling lunch. TRY IT.

Although 306 is about a 20 minute drive from our house, it is the first and foremost place my wife and I dine for good tasting barbecue pork, ribs, chicken salad, and roasted chicken. Having grown up in a small cow town in Texas, I understand the standards required for great barbecued food, and 306 meets all of those standards.... More

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!!
