Stopped in here with family while visiting for a family event. They have pork, turkey, chicken, ribs, and on some days, brisket.

Visited 306 BBQ again and it was even better than last time. Ordered two pulled pork BBQ sandwiches w/fries. The sandwich had so much meat, I could only eat one. Now I have one for later.

I tried the pulled pork dinner, with red beans and rice. The price is right and the food was good! Service was good but they had a problem with providing a credit card recite. Server was very helpful.

Had a business lunch there today. I had a Rib plate with sweet potato casserole and turnip greens. The food and service were Excellent. If they have it try the red beans and rice, as good as you can get in the Big Easy.

My family and I ate there today and I've never been so happy with Customer Service in all my 67 years on this earth. The waitresses were busy but still very attentive and made sure I was happy with my food. I will definitely be back and tell others about my wonderful experience

306 BBQ catered our event for 300+ last night and I had a chance to enjoy a great meal! Well organized and managed, never running out of the serving dishes, etc. The items remembered the most was the brisket, Mac & Cheese, and apple crisp. An enjoyable evening!
