Barbeque to Go

This is a must do - the pulled pork is delicious. The only downside is don't get there late as you might be disappointed that they ran out of something you've been craving. Very friendly staff.

This is the place to get real BBQ. It's proven by the longevity of the business. Basically a roadside stop. Walk up and order - they'll bag your order and you're off. Cheaper and healthier than McDonalds across the road.

Good reason there's a line at this food truck! Large portions of very meaty ribs, Cole slaw and potato salad. Delicious!

Consistently good pulled pork at lowest price seen, and they include sauce in a drink cup, not a tablespoon.

We live in the South. We like BBQ. This is the best pulled pork we have ever had. The sauce is good, but the meat is perfect without any sauce. Very tender and tasty. They sell out, get there a bit early. Be on the lookout for this small place, you don't want to miss it.

The food truck is open Thursday, Friday & Saturday so don't miss it. The BBQ is smokey and moist. Ribs fall off the bone. Portions are good. The sides are homemade and fresh. What a great picnic!

went to paul Gants trailer and got sandwiches, chips and sweet tea. Really enjoyed our meal as we rode towards appalachicola. Lady working there was very nice and I wish I had stopped at the piggly wiggly and gotten some more buns as there was enough meat for 3 sandwiches. So good that we revisited 4 days later for roadies... More

We stop here on our way to Cape San Blas, so no worrying about preparing dinner the first night of our stay. The pulled pork is our favorite with all the sides.

Every summer, my entire family anticipates eating Paul Gant!! The ribs, pulled pork and the baked beans are some of the best I have ever eaten. And the quantity, a hungry man's dinner is enough for two. They are also so accommodating and friendly!

Stopped for a sandwich and was a bit disappointed. The pulled pork didn't have much smoke. It was more like roasted with BBQ sauce.
