If you're hungry for some good fresh "country style HOME Cookin," meats, veggies & baked goods, ROY'S is my preference. Their Bar-B-Q is as good as it comes, & we get carry out orders for big family & social events. "DEPENDABLE" !!! "WoW" is my feelings of their homemade pies!

I was with a group of people and the service was fine except that our food came out at separate times so two of my friends had to wait to eat until everyone else got their food. The food was O.K. I and a friend had a salad, two others had fish (they really enjoyed it) and my daughter had... More

The food was great as usual, but man the service gets worse and worse every time we go! Thankfully they do carry out!

The east side facility is a little shanty with one room for guests, kitchen, and retail sales. The barbeque was the best in town and worth a trip back.

Had lunch with family members and was surprised by the lack of food quality. The fries were cold, the pork sandwiches were soggy and cold and the crowd was thin, so there was no excuse for being "overwhelmed by customers".
