I stopped here for lunch on a Saturday at 12:30pm. There are about 15 padded picnic tables for seating and half of them were full. My order took a little time, 20 minutes. You order and then your order is called out. I ordered the mixed combo plate. It was sliced pork and beef; a bun; French fries... read more

Rudest uncaring staff I have ever experienced. Stopped on our way from Florida to Arkansas. Went to the counter and was greeted by a woman that acted like we were interupting her. After we placed our order she asked my wife want she wanted to drink. My wife whom had a bottle of diet 7up in her hand with about... More

Old greasy french fries, nasty not even smoked BBQ! They don't even smoke their own meat! What? How can you even call yourself a BBQ restaurant! Honestly don't know how they are still in business! Disgrace to Mississippi BBQ!

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... 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
