Wonderful BBQ

Nothing fancy, but excellent BBQ. Half chickens, wings, brisket, and a great selection of sides. The green beans are our favorite! Lots of sauces. Not much seating but very fast service if you plan to take out. This restaurant has great food at a fair price.

carry out menu: the pulled pork bbq and baked beans is excellent. Slow cooked meat / bbq is after all the way to go. Enjoyed it every time we ordered. Pair it with beer to truly enjoy the bbq even in winter.

When my husband's parents come to visit, we always have to go to Acme. They say it's the best barbecue they've had, anywhere! I'm not normally a barbecue fan myself, their sandwiches won me over. The cornbread is great, too. Seating is limited and once they're out of slow-cooked meat, they're out for the day. Plan accordingly.

Small place, only seats 20. Has an open porch in the back it the weather is warm. Outstanding brisket, pullled pork and sausage. Did not try the chicken but it looked great. Corn bread is just right. Deep fried potato salad is unusual and mouth watering. A little disappointed because I brought several friends there and there was no corn... More

The food is scrumptious, the slow cooking and myriad of sauces makes this place worth a trip. I suggest take out since there is limited seating. Definite go to for catering as well, even their sides are awesome.

I always make a trip down South every summer and I always get ribs because they are best in the South. I am happy that I have a superb place to get ribs that can hold their own against my Southern ribs. I love the pig rolls, cornbread and collard greens.

I'm not a barbeque expert but the food here is very good! There's limited hours and seating inside but the food is great. The fried potato salad is amazing and like nothing I've had before.

We really enjoyed the ribs and brisket at this basic barbecue joint in down town Williamsport. The inside seating is cramped but they have a large covered outdoor seating area out back. The staff was a little disinterested but at this type of counter service BBQ it really didn't have much bearing on our dining experience.

Service is slow, food is fair, ate there when it first opened and was disappointed, thought I would give them a second chance, but did not improve, server was actually rude, and obviously wanted to be somewhere else, won't go back .

We walked to this restaurant from our hotel. It is a small place but the food was good. The turkey was southern style BBQ with vinegar and crushed red pepper which is unusual to find in the north. The dressed ribs were the best of the 3 meats we tried. No hushpuppies on the menu but they did have deep... More
