Some of the best BBQ you will find anywhere! We've eaten there several times and are never disappointed. The food is reasonable and plentiful. Oh, make sure you have cash though -- no credit cards accepted. And they're only open for lunch (11-2), except for Friday and Saturday (11-8). I believe they have steaks on Friday evenings. I have yet... More

This is not a fancy eating establishment. It doesn't pretend to be either. It has the main thing I go to restaurants for - GREAT FOOD! The place is clean. Granger and Son's does great BBQ at a fair price. They have tables and chairs inside, and a covered patio with tables and chairs outside (if it is cool enough).... More

My wife and I went to Granger's for lunch today. We both got the small rib plate with 2 sides, which is still a pretty big lunch. Ribs were tender and lean, with enough bite and chew to be really satisfying. When people talk about "fall off the bone" as if it's the gold standard for ribs, I cringe; if... More

It's very homey and fairly inexpensive. The food is good, better than a chain place, but not as good as I'd hoped it'd be. It was late afternoon when we ate and they were already out of all sides except baked beans. The portions are generous, so the value is very good. Service is very good. I'd certainly return if...

Don't let the outside appearance scare you away....this is an awesome family run barbeque place. Wonderful staff, great food and reasonable prices. Plus, sometimes there is the coolest original edition Bronco parked out in front! You will not be disappointed!your experiences, you're helping travelers make better choices and plan their dream trips. Thank you!

This place is just about average. If you want all the ribs you can eat among other great foods go to Fred's Market.

BBQ was average at best. My biggest complaint is while a friend and I were almost finished with our meal the owner came over and threw our plates away and said we would have to leave so he could have the table for a couple people waiting to eat, but we could go sit outside on the patio? The couple... More
