Best Bar-B-Q Ive ever had

I have been eating at Old Timers since the late 60's when they first opened, as I grew up in Florence, MS, just south of Jackson, MS on Hwy 49 South. I have had Barbque close to as good, but none better than old timers. The owner, a short pudgy guy, is not real personable, but I go there for... read more

Old Timers BBQ opened in 1966 or 67 by original owner George Motley. A number of years later the place was turned over to Mr. Motley's daughter and son in law (He is from Greece, hence the Greek flag, etc). I absolutely love their BBQ beef sandwiches, and have eater there more times than I can remember. I've not lived... More

Extremely limited menu. Food wasn't great and portions were small. Grabbed baklava for dessert on the way out and it was really good. Would stop for baklava but not BBQ.

Nothing but awful!! Sticky tables, rude owners / waitstaff, and food is only average .. Smells good from afar. Interesting building but not worth EVER going back

This place was not what we had hoped for so we ended up at Dickies. Much better and were pleased. Don't waste your time at Old Timers

I had lunch at Old Timers Bar-B-Que today, July 9, 2014. They don't serve ribs, so I guess it is questionable as to whether or not they can really call themselves a bar-b-que restaurant. I had the bar-b-que pork plate, and it was apparently pulled pork. It was served with french fries that were stuck together and cold, and an... More

My wife and I were craving some BBQ one Saturday evening so we went riding all over the area looking for somewhere different to see if we could find a hidden gem. We saw old timers BBQ there off I-49 and decided to give it a try. There were 2 cars in the parking lot at 6 on Saturday evening.... More

We have stopped there a number of times going to FL from Ark. We have always had a positive experience. Thought the food was good. The fellow that runs the place is not especially talkative, but I don't consider him rude. I go to a place for the the food and not the conversation with the staff. We first noticed... More

This place was pure genius. The architecture was a fine expedition of the best of Southern culture, tinged with Greek patriotism. A sleepy and ill-disposed man of Greek descent runs the place. I dared to ask his name, me being from the South and thus accustomed to introductions, and he shot back, "Why do you need to know my name?... More

The pork here was o.k. Don't ask about the chicken. There is none, and they will yell at you about asking. I don't know how they stay in business. They are some of the rudest people that I have ever met.
