Great food in a modest setting, southern family style place. Grangers does it right. I love the pulled pork sandwich and they do ul a great steak.

Yes, the food here on their limited menu is good, and about as fresh as you can get. You'll get no extras. No real plates, no ambiance, no A/C. You order at a counter and bring your food to your table. Again the food is good, the price is fair. It's an out of the way hole-in-the-wall that offers little,... More

After reading all the reviews we decided to arrive a little early for dinner on a Saturday in April and we were the first to arrive. Only ribs were ready although the owner said that steaks would be ready in about 45 minutes if we wanted to wait. We decided to go with the ribs and it turned out to... More

Real BBQ smoked over wood the old fashioned way. Nothing fancy about this place and a limited menu. But if you like BBQ ribs, you will find none better. Every trip to Florida from Wisconsin includes a stop here. They only make so much and when it is gone it is gone. Limited hours.

We visit every time we are in area, multiple times if possible! Can't find a friendlier group, food is fantastic and well priced. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and plan your return trip. Don't be late though, when they run out of food, the menu is limited!

Granger and family have been around a long time, wish I could make potato salad like that, and love the sauce. Plenty on the plate to fill you up.

Looking for great BBQ on a road trip and found this place. It's quite a distance from the highway but worth the drive. Walked in for a late lunch and was given the last plate of ribs. When the food was gone they closed. Great tasting ribs, beans and potato salad. Steal kabobs were good too. Plenty of food for... More

Family owned and operated feels like going to your brother's house for dinner. Well, if your brother lived in a little quaint shack LOL. To do any upgrades would require such significant permitting (they are grandfathered in) that the cost would surely be passed on in the food. As it is, quality food at a reasonable price! Ribs are great... More
