Great BBQ and fried catfish. Love the outdoor decor and service is usually top notch. Their onion rings are fanFREAKINGtastic.

Sorry to be so graphic with my title, but this BBQ had to be one of the best meals I've had. We came here based on a recommendation from the Holiday Inn we stayed at. We ordered to go because didn't feel we were dressed good after traveling. However, when we picked up the order, we could tell we were... More

Ok folks, here it is. Pure and simple absolutely THE best Q there is ANYWHERE, PERIOD! Forget Kansas City, Memphis, Nashville, or ANY place you have heard about. This is seriously THE best Q to be found on this planet. The ribs WILL make you cry when they are gone. Pulled pork like anywhere can be a bit dry, but... More

This is a regular stop for us as well as the place we bring family for consistently good food. The prime rib is seasoned perfectly, the Greek catfish is a treat, and the sides are all good. The pulled pork is great, but the chicken fried steak was disappointing. We will definitely keep coming back for the great food and... More

The ribs are the absolute best! The rub on the ribs just enough. You don't need BBQ sauce. Usually you know that if it's done right you don't want to mess it up by adding sauces. The other menu items are not bad either. The menu has a lot to offer. There is not anything really NOT good, just preference.... More

Runts is well rated on Tripadvisor and justly so. We had ribs (big, tender, well smoked), burnt ends (juicy, tender, well smoked) and prime rib sandwich (large cut, tender) for our party of three. A lot to eat and priced right ($33. plus tip.) Sides were okay but the meat was great

My 2 favorites at Runts....fried Catfish and pulled pork! Consistently delicious! The homemade Tartar sauce for the catfish is perfect. I usually order a salad as one of my sides and I enjoy their homemade blue cheese or ranch dressing. The owners are actively involved in their business ensuring you'll have a positive experience. Love the wait staff!
