I had a great wings and ribs combo, tasty and made to order. It may be a little slow for lunch if you are in a hurry but overall the service is good.

Nice place to have lunch/dinner and a drink after arriving at the Orlando airport. Very near the expressway so we could easily continue on to our final vacation destination after eating. Much better than fast food or stopping at an Oasis on the Florida Turnpike....More

Went here while on a travel delay. Came early evening/late afternoon. Portions were great and salad bar is also good. Had the sliced pork and would recommend it.

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.
