Fun Place to Go for a Quick Bite

Not really knowing what we wanted as a light bite, we chose a few sides, baked beans (good and spicy), collards (very tasty though would have like them to have been drained a little more), coleslaw (great) and green beans (very good). The decor was fun, just what you would expect from a southern... read more

I've been traveling for a loooooong time and have the expanding waistline to prove it, so I ordered chicken. It was dry. The sides were really good and I think this pork and what all everyone got was better than my chicken but I can only go by what I ate, and what I ate was a shriveled piece of... More

Very good brisket, ribs, collards, mac-n-cheese. They have fried okra but it is not on the menu. Ask if you want it. The peach cobbler is just ok. Worth stopping and filling up on the pig.

My coworker and I have visited here several times. It is usually quick and unassuming, a nice place for a quick lunch. Our experience today assured us we will never return. Upon arrival, we stood for a few minutes while four workers in the food prep area did whatever it is they do. There was no one waiting to order... More

I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was here. Being from Texas, I was prepared for a mediocre barbecue meal. The brisket was tender, juicy and flavorful. I choose a tangy sweet sauce that was oh so delicious and added Collard Greens and Mac n Cheese as sides. Great ambience and friendly service topped off a great dining... More

Went with two friends to Willie Jewells for a suppertime meal. First time here for myself. My friends had went on and on about the food served here. I ordered the pork platter with baked beans and collards. While waiting for our meals to be brought to our table, I went to the sauce bar and sampled them all. Decided... More

Just around the corner from our hotel. Reasonably priced we paid around $12 a piece for dinner. Turkey was juicy and was available as a 1/4 or 1/2, but there was only one price on the menu. Dinner at that price was delicious and filling.

great price.. when I ordered the turkey, I expected a turkey leg or wing, but it was roasted turkey, so was disappointed in that..

We were looking for a local place to eat while visiting CSU. Pulled into a strip mall and found Willie Jewells. It was absolutely delicious. Nice menu choices, large portions, great prices and wonderful service. special touch was the warmed BBQ sauces to choose from!
