You'll never go wrong stopping here. If you're going at dinner time expect a line when you walk in the door and you better grab the first open table you see. The chicken nuggets, fried chicken and ribs are great. I always order green beans and greens as my sides, these have become the standards that I measure other restaurants... More

There was a line of folks all the way to the door (maybe 10-12 people) placing orders. Don't let that discourage you. Two cash registers had us ordering in less then five minutes and fresh hot...

If you like good old-fashioned barbecue, plenty of flavor and don't want to spend a lot, then Callahan Barbecue is for you. But wait- if you are a chicken fan, the sub text on the sign reads The Chicken House. They serve some really great southern fried and grilled chicken (try the grilled chicken sandwich), plus southern specialties like chicken... More

This food is amazingly good. Known for their fried chicken, which is outstanding, their BBQ is equally just as good. You can never have a bad meal here. Danny is great to work with on placing large orders with, and is always accommodating. Providing all the essentials to make for a great lunch for some hungry cowboys. If near this... More
