“Needs help”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

I will start with the good, the chicken was well seasoned and the baked beans were good. The prices are fantastic and the menu has about everything southern. The problem we had was the service, not friendly or that southern warm you expect. The place is dirty, there is no other way to put it, it needs a good steam cleaning. The bathroom are bad, there is no lock at the stall and look and feel dirty. That is the feeling you get at this place, its dirty. The food we ordered was cold and the worst part is the soup was cold. We ordered coffee, never asked if we were ready for dessert. The creamers were powder packets, non dairy, yuck....Pretty much you are on your own, don't expect to be catered too. I would say just order to go, warm up the food at home and enjoy at home.

Hi, I am sorry to hear you were were disappointed with your visit to Goodman's, I was wondering what exactly you thought was dirty at my restaurant? The bathrooms were re done a few years ago, There is a lock on the doors, it is the small round hole in the middle and of the doors and you click it and locks. I admit my building is going on thirty years old, but I Keep my place clean, As far as the food being cold I will address the situation for sure, and the service. Thank you for bring it to mt attention, Please give me your feedback on what made you think it was not clean enough,. Thank you, Sandy Chester

“loved this place and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

I'm coming at this from a first experience of BBQ places and we really liked it. It isn't fancy but it doesn't try or pretend to be. It's basic to look at and a bit quirky but the place was full, with locals and not tourists (like us!). The service was very good and the food just great. The fried green tomatoes were wonderful with a crisp light batter and as this was our first experience of these I have a feeling that all others on our trip will be judged against these and that we may have had the best first. The BBQ chicken and ribs were excellent and as there was a lot and I couldn't finish them, I'm already looking forward to these cold for lunch on our journey today and we haven't had breakfast yet! Oh and the peach and the blueberry cobbler, included in the meal, were fantastic and we don't often finish a dessert, we did these. If you're local you know this place but if you're passing through and you don't want fancy but you do want a local feel and great food, go here.

“Good Southern Grub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

We have eaten here before. If you like Southern cooking(Fried Green Tomatoes,Brunswick Stew, fried Okra, etc, this is an OK place. Not too expensive, just plain old southern cooking. It will keep you alive.
