We were looking for houses in the area and decided to have lunch. in a local BBQ joint. The food was plentiful, great service and tasted wonderful. A true local BBQ joint that needs to be enjoyed.

Amazing barbeque! This mom and pop has the most succulent meat in the area at amazingly low prices. There is an all you can eat option on all meats for about 14.00 . Excellent sides. I can make a meal out of the baked beans ad turnip greens. A small salad bar and delicious real southern sweet tea. A veranda... More

We ordered chicken, ribs, slaw, and potato salad for take out orders two nights, while we were in town. Both orders were really good in flavor and value.

Great ribs had very good color and flavor and the sauce was very good also this is what ribs should be. The place is a little off the beaten path but well worth the trip. We had ribs to go but when I picked the up it was very clean and the service was good

We stopped in for dinner the other night, and were pleasantly surprised by how great this place was! We've driven past it countless times, and are so happy we finally went in. I got the chopped pork sandwich, and my boyfriend go the AYCE rib special. We were both STUFFED when we left, and didn't break the bank, which was... More

JR's is the local BBQ joint in Lynn Haven. It is in an old building that provably needs a facelift. It's food is ok, but not great. With Sonnys moving in nearby, and local favorite Smittys just down the street, there are other options. We do get our holiday turkey smoked here, and they do a great job with that.

You might pass this place by because of the outside of the building, however, it is your loss. The inside is more of a diner style. The ribs were amazing - moist and tender. The baked beans were great as well. As I am a mustard person, I loved the potato salad. If you don't like mustard, you may want... More

Building is old and rotten. It needs to be shut down. Don't know how they pass health department standards.
