I have eaten at this location and their other location on greenbrier road. The food quality at this location is much better than greenbrier road.

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!

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
