Best BBQ in Billtown

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

Having walked past many full restaurants to get here, based on the TripAdvisor reviews, we were staggered that the place wasn't heaving but thrilled too, as it meant we could get in. We spent $44 for 2 sodas and more food than we could eat. It was all really good - great meats, nice sides and good sauces to dunk... More

My family loves coming to Acme for the pulled pork sandwiches. It takes to hands to hold the sandwich due to the amount of meat in it. The sauces are all good. Try the deep fried potato salad and spiced green beans. My future son-in-law is from N.C, and states the collard greens are the best he's had in the... More
