Golden Rule BBQ has decent BBQ and sides, but you should find your way here for breakfast. The biscuits, French Toast, and standard eggs, ham, and grits are as good as any you will find.

Don't have many GOOD BBQ here in the North so I took the opportunity to partake in Pell City. Had such a great BBQ dinner at Golden Rule had to go back for lunch the next day before flight back to Detroit. Glad I did, and when I return this will be one of the first stops.
