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

This place is a little out of town, it sits by itself out in the country. We went in on a Sunday evening and had the place almost to our selves. We got the ribs and the pulled pork , both were very good, we would visit here again ! I asked why it was so empty when the food... More

My wife and I ate at Witt's for the first time last night. What a great treat. I had the baby back ribs; my wife had the brisket. Both were excellent. The baked beans are the best I've ever tasted. The services was great, the family atmosphere was exactly what we wanted, and it was very enjoyable. Note: Our GPS... More

I've recently figure out that Megan ( not sure how to spell her name ) had been let go . . we requested her EVERYTIME . the other waitress lacks personality and skills for a waitress . . won't be back unless Megan is is there .

I'm in the military currently serving over seas, so I don't get much of a chance to enjoy my hometown restaurants. But when I am home, Witt's Smokehouse is always a stop that I make to get some good home style cooking. A must stop for those BBQ fans!

We ate here after golfing at Cardinal Golf Course, Wonderful place with great atmosphere. They have an outddor area that has seating and a grassy area with picnic tables. They have just started gaming machines too. The loaded baked potato is to die for! Although a few miles out of town, this is worth the drive for sure!

One of just a handful of places worth eating at in Effingham county. Way better than Firefly grill. The best restaurant in Effingham is probably El Rancherito, it went downhill for a few years, but now they are back to top form. And El Rancherito didn't even make the list of 27, go figure. Second best place that I have... More
