Terrific food without fail

Not sure what Allison913's (from NYC) problem is, but we have come in with a mixed race group several times over the last few years and without fail had great food, great service. Our biggest issue is they give us TOO much food the pulled pork, beef brisket slaw (made German style with... read more

North 441 has the best bar-b-que in a gas station...gorgeous drive south of Gainesville! Mustard sauce on ribs & beef brisket with collards, green beans, fried okra & sweet potato fries are the best!

Great BBQ. The food is great and the people are fine. The accommodations are not beautiful but pleasant.

The place looks like a dive, and you can get your hair cut, get gas, and take out a bank loan at the same location! But I always stop at pearls when passing this part of the state- no one does bbt lie them!

Oh dear heavens, this fun place has good grub no matter what you choose! It ain't for the country club types which is why I like it.

When I asked a local about where to go for BBQ, I got a big smile and was told to go to the "gas station on 441". More specifically, it's a Marathon convenience station with a very small, somewhat isolated "diner" inside, perhaps 8 tables, self service style. No different than countless gas stations we've all driven past, except this... More

Bought take out fish fry and french fries. When I arrived home, I noticed there were hardly any french fries in 3 of the 4 orders I bought. One order had 9 french fries, another 11 and 12. Only 1 order had a respectful amount of fries. I called and complained and was rudely told that they take a handful... More

BBQ in gas station/store has great country ribs. This is the place we get our ribs. No need for us to cook when we can get these tender juicy ribs. BBQ chicken is also a good choice. Some of the sides are hit or miss. The fries and cole slaw are consistently good. The baked goods are fresh and worth... More

This quirky spot tries, with some success, to be an old fashioned country store with food. It definitely is a filling station, and sells food items. The BBQ is pretty much Florida average, but if you are in the area it makes a good lunch.
