We go here about once a month with others and have found this place to be average. The hush puppies are very good; the barbecue is OK. Our concern had to do with ratings which were in the 80-something percent last month. They corrected it, but I have not been back. Will try again next week.

Really enjoyed the pork barbeque! Friendly and attentive staff. Our plates were full and every morsel was eaten. Delicious. A relaxed, homey atmosphere.

Visiting the area with coworkers and looking for regional BBQ flavors. I ordered the ribs and was very pleased with the smokey flavor. Ribs were very tinder. Also enjoyed the homemade blackberry cobbler.

We never know what we're going to get when we go there! A manager told us that the beef bbq was "wet" one visit when we complained. Then, we just had some a couple nights ago and the beef bbq was DELICIOUS. You can never go wrong if you order the bbq chicken, half or whole. The chicken is ALWAYS... More

Hillbilly's is a quirky place with pleasant staff, but the food is ordinary to poor. The ribs were pretty good and the sauce was very good. The green beans were straight out pf a can, in bits and pieces, and barely warm. The collards were very tasty. The baked sweet potatoes we're watery and the skins were burned so much... More

This is the first restaurant review I've ever typed. Hillybillys was so bad I felt the need to write one. I went there today and got a small beef with mash potatoes and a baked potatoe and my boyfriend got 1/2 a chicken with mash potatoes and corn. For starters my small beef was cold and stale. Our mash potatoes... More

Now that I've made your mouth water I have to say this is a great place to eat. Everytime I am in town I go to Hillbilly's. I always get the pulled pork plate with baked sweet potato and a big glass of sweet tea. It's doesn't get more southern than a dinner at Hillbilly's! The ladies are super nice... More
