I am not a BBQ eater so, it may be good, but other food is below average. Long waits, slow staff, pricey, weird hours. Been here 4 or 5 times. Don't get pizza.

A combination deli/catering/order out place that also has a few cafeteria style booths and tables for eating in. It's a couple of miles out of town and very unassuming but the food is great. All sauces and rubs are their own creation. Our waitress Ashley was an absolute stitch. Everyone in our party was very happy with their meal.

Witts smokehouse has seasonal hours. They vary from what trip advisor shows. I posted a picture showing those times. Check that or call ahead before driving out of your way.

This place has a very good Spinach Dip appetizer. The atmosphere is rustic and they also have outdoor seating during the nicer weather months. The food here tastes freshly made. This is a local establishment that is not some big chain that ships things in, which is great to have things fresh here! Effingham has many chain establishments and it... More

We came from out of town with Trip Advisor showing this place to be open. We get there and their hours show closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Are you kidding? Lol! What a joke

We stopped at Whitt's on the way to visit family. It is located just outside Effingham. It was a Friday night and we expected it to be busy. It was not very busy however. The interior has a bunch of tables and also a bar on the left side of the building. The bar sits about 8 people but there... More

I was in town for a fiddle contest, and stopped in Witt's to get something to take back to the motel. I chose a smoked brisket dinner, with baked potato and beans as my two sides. It also came with cornbread. Brisket was good, as were the beans & cornbread (bread a little sweeter than I prefer). I was in... More

We stopped here on our long drive to Florida. I was a little disappointed with the meal. The BBQ flavor wasn't what I had hoped for. It wasn't bad, just not great. I don't know what the meatloaf was made of, but I wouldn't order that again. My son enjoyed his BBQ ribs and pulled pork. My other son enjoyed... More
