Kiser's is great. There's nothing on the menu that isn't great, but the ribs, chicken breast, quesadilla and pulled pork deserve excellent ratings. bbq sauces are flavorable and not eye-watering painful. The sides are good, and no place in town can compete with the fries and slaw. The location is small, so parties of 6 or more have to be... More

I've eaten here many times the past few years and I've loved it every time. Their pulled pork, coleslaw and fried are AMAZING. Fast and friendly service every time. It's nice to have an affordable locally owned restaurant and they use food grown in the Athens area by privately owned family farms. Kiser's is absolutely worth a visit!

My husband and I LOVE Kiser's! We make a lot of trips to Athens from Gallipolis just to eat. Never have had anything bad. Service is always great and staff is very professional, which you never see anymore. One day, when my husband gets the nerve, he is going to attempt the Boss Hog challenge! Kiser's, you will always have... More

My son and I had the following: pulled pork sandwich, sliced brisket sandwich, french fries, side of their baked beans, and two drinks. Price was $17.XX. I felt the food was over priced but very tasty. Given the price of the sandwiches they should include a side. The sauce isn't anything I haven't tasted before. I had a side of... More

If you're like me, it's hard to take a strip mall restaurant seriously. Don't let that little detail scare you away or you'll be missing out on something special. This place is the real deal. My husband is a bbq snob and only once in our previous travels has he raved about ribs like he did at Kiser's. Between the... More

I had heard awesome things about Kisers. We went with high expectations and left very disappointed. The food was terrible, and I love all food! I've had better baked beans from a can and would rather have Kraft Mac b cheese any day over theirs. The BBQ sauce was nothing special, also have had way, WAY better. I could have... More

We stopped here while driving through Athens. I had the stuffed grilled cheese and it was really good. The staff was great and very helpful with the menu.

Their pulled pork sandwiches are a great meal by themselves, the sides are great and their selection of signature sauces give just the right kick. Being a local believe me when I say that this is the best BBQ Athens has to offer.
