This place is right up the street from my hotel and I like BBQ. Stopped on a Friday evening for dinner. I had the buffet. Everything was good and the service was great. The ladies kept my tea full. No complaints. Would have no problem going back.

it was pretty good anyway. We both had the buffet -- which served ribs, sausage, fried fish / chicken. I stuck to the fish but my husband said the ribs were great. $35 for both.

As the minorities at this establishment we were definitely treated with hostility for some reason. We have had carry out several times and this was the 1st time we were treated like this. Two in our party had buffet but I chose to place an order. After no one checked on us I finally had to go find a waitress... More

Went on a Friday evening, got there about 20 minutes after a college baseball team show up. Several items wiped off the buffet and not replenished during our visit. Ribs on buffet tough .. Might have been better to order off the menu, suspect the ribs were "rushed" because of baseball team wiping out the cooked rib supply..

Everything they serve is excellent. I have not eaten anything I did not like. Best way to enjoy J Rodgers is to come at lunch for the buffet and enjoy it all. YoJo beans are wonderful. If you can get the Chicken Salad it's the best. Also, love the turnip greens.

As we walked in we were asked for our drink orders and told to sit anywhere we'd like. We decided to eat off the buffet. Our waitress greeted us by saying "y'all gon eat off the buffet right?" We said yes. She put our drinks down and said "yall can get up" then walked away. The buffet consisted of ribs,... More
