We like our BBQ. Had the brisket and pork sandwich. Both were very good. However, I do not understand why the garlic bread is larger than the bun. I did not want to cross flavor garlic and good bbq, so was disappointed to see the...More

Description
In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.
