Sought out this place after reading reviews and was disappointed. I had the pulled pork sandwich, which was cold, as was the bun. Fries and cornbread were average at best. I'm from South Louisiana and we have chain restaurants that serve barbecue as good or better. I find it hard to believe this is the 2nd best restrauant in Williamsport.... More

Perhaps it's because I watch way too many shows on barbecue, or perhaps it's just because I love meat, but burnt ends are something that I have always wanted to try. No barbecue joint in my area serves them and I have yet to eat somewhere that does, until I ate at Acme Barbecue. I had scouted their menu out... More

I work downtown and this is, by far, my favorite place for lunch, which upsets my family because they want to get their dinner from ACME. It is difficult to say what I like best because it is all so darn good, but everyone should try the pigroll. You shgould also be sure to visit on Fridays during Lent to... More

Stop by after a local business meeting for lunch. Amazing!! I had a chicken salad and it was delicious!! The pulled pork smelled awesome, if it wasn't for my diet I would have tried it.

As far as BBQ (food) goes, you won't find better anywhere nearby! Food-wise, it is the best! Excellent sandwiches and combo plates, and always a lunch special or two. The place is tiny though, with only about four tables inside (although the outside covered patio is nice in the warmer weather), and BBQ joints like Skeeter's (30 miles south) has... More

My wife and I were driving back from a long trip to SC, VA and back to NY. We had lots of southern BBQ in Richmond, Charleston, etc., but none were as good as the Acme Barbecue Restaurant! I had pulled pork which was very tender and the sauce was better than anything we had down south. My wife had... More

George has done a phenomenal job with Acme. We regularly get take out from here. Recommend buying it in bulk by the pound as it is quite cheap this way and we get two meals out of it. Try all the sauces. Love the white bar-b-que sauce. Best in the country!!!

Stopped in ACME based on Trip Avd reviews and was not disappointed. A small place with a few tables and lots of take out. The mix of customers was good with locals, college kids and business types. The brisket was very moist and lots of sauce choices on the table. Lunch for two was about $20 including drink BBQ and... More
