I usually write up a place because it is somewhere I really feel others would enjoy as well as me. This is an exception to the rule. Poor customers living there must have never had good barbecue. Folks, the campus has some interesting and beautiful buildings. The campus in Spring is alive with all manner of flowers. BUT, and this... More

Always good when I go. I especially enjoy the ribs when they are available. Nice atmosphere the owner Jeff Price is usually there and adds to the service. He has a good crew and friendly.

Good BBQ at good prices. Not a fancy joint but a nice place for a hungry belly. We stopped for lunch and tried the pork plate and chicken sandwich. Tasty!

The crew at Price's BBQ do it right. Friendly service, excellent BBQ. Nothing fancy. Just right. One of the very best Southern breakfasts in Auburn. BBQ salad is a favorite. And don't forget to order a slice of peanut butter pie.

Barbecue House on South College Street is an Auburn Tradition. The BBQ sandwich comes either chopped or sliced. I like the chopped with BBQ slaw on the sandwich. The stew is really good also. Great place to purchase BBQ , slaw, baked beans and stew by bulk for Tailgating. This is a must stop when your in Auburn. They are... More

Always a great breakfast. The sad part is that they only do breakfast Monday thru Friday. Old fashioned style breakfasts with great coffee. Pancakes are super and French Toast exceptional. Forget the BBQ because it is OK and about the same as the dozen or so BBQ places in area. Not fancy but as good as breakfast gets and not... More

This BBQ place is one of the best in Auburn. The people are great and food is delicious. If you have time to come in for breakfast it has THE BEST grits in the south! The BBQ is mouth watering and nothing beats finishing it off with some peanut butter pie that will make you slap your momma. Absolutely great... More
