Good Food

Adam's has good food, but it is not five star! But hey you're not paying for five star neither. Their is plenty of food brought out and all at a good price. One of the best cheep eats in Gainesville! My only complaint is the tea was a little too sweet, but if you got half sweet and half... read more

Small restaurant, no beer, no atmosphere but, the absolute best ribs I have ever tasted. The sides look great as well. I had collards and fries which were great. About a dozen different sauces. Really friendly staff.

The restaurant has a large selection of sauces you can try on your ribs, The ribs are big and Juicy and moist. They also serve very good pork sandwiches. The service is friendly and the prices are reasonable.

We often make Adam's a stop when we're in Gainesville. The food is consistently good and they keep the tea glass full. The smallest rib plate with two sides is more than I can eat, and the same can be said for the pulled pork. It's a simple place, very informal, with bar stools for lone guests and tables around...

Both locations are great I personally prefer the location closer to shands but that is because I work at shands. They always have resonably priced lunch deals and they're greens are great. They have pretty friendly staff and FYI if your trying to get lunch call after 1030 they usally don't know ahead.

This is what southern BBQ is supposed to be. I can't believe other BBQ places in Gainesville are able to stay in business with this place in town. It's homey, friendly, serves wonderful SMOKEY BBQ with a terrific selection of sauces (ON THE SIDE!), and does it at a very reasonable price. The ribs have bite--none of that "fall-off-the-bone" rubbish... More

Convenient due 2 my employment. Love the long time female staff...always very fast, friendly & professional. There's a daily food special, which is nice. Luv the greens, lumpy mashed potatoes, cornbread, lean chopped turkey, & sweet sauce. Free drink refills. While there say hello 2 the stray cat "Dumpster," who's a regular thanks 2 the kind hearted staff:)

I loved the atmosphere of this restaurant, today was my families first visit. We were very impressed, the ribs were out of this world! They smoke them with a rub on them, then coat them in a sauce, then smoke them some more. Great flavor, very tender, moist, and VERY MEATY! Great service, clean place, and great food. I will...

Great lunch spot for the guys, small diner crowd so most of the lunch time business is take out. I sat in for a few minutes and the majority of the business was pick up. Good portions, okay flavor. I expected a little more from the ribs on flavor since it was their specialty - but they were prepared well.... More
