We found this little gem on our drive to Florida. It was busy, Sunday noon, but the service was quick. You order your food at the counter and find a place to sit and they bring you the food. We had the pork plate. The food was amazing. Being from the north we never had white BBQ sauce, my husband... More

Great food. Best ribs I have ever had - hands down! I have to be gluten free and they can reasonably accommodate this. Great atmosphere. Would highly suggest this for locals and tourists alike.

We stopped to eat on a Saturday night and I was disappointed. Ribs were tender but flavor was just ok. It seems to me they don't have enough dry seasoning or smoke on ribs. Service was really good. One person in our party had chicken fingers and they were outstanding.

Stopped by for lunch on Saturday. No wait. Food came out hot and quick. A little expensive for lunch, ended up being $50 for 4. We had a rib sandwich, a chicken potato and 2 orders of (6) wings. The potato was good. It would have been better if the cheese was melted. The rib sandwich and wings were very... More

Tried 306 with a friend of mine. We BBQ at home and smoke everything from meats to cheese. In my opinion the food here is good but far from great. I had ribs and pulled pork and I felt it was over priced. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was pleasantly clean.

We visited after church on a Sunday and enjoyed the great food. Lots of excellent choices, but my favorite is the brisket. Fast service and always prepared just right. We prefer this location over the new one over off I-565.

My wife and I visited this nice barbecue place while visiting friends recently in Athens. Although not the absolute best BBQ I've ever had, it was quite tasty. I especially liked the baked beans they offered. I would recommend 306 BBQ to anyone looking for good barbecue in the Athens area. I don't believe you'll be disappointed.

We went to this place based on the recommendations for other viewers. I wish we would not have. We all had the pork. The BBQ sauce was so watery and the Mac and cheese that so many said was good reminded me of Stouffers. The only thing I liked was that the ribs were very tender to were they fell... More

We are from NC and I loved the BBQ here! We had a bit of everything because we dined with family it was great. The ribs were some of the best I have had, pulled pork great but the smoked turkey was to die for. Just wish they had the brisket available when we went.
