It's been around a long time and the food is awesome. Needs updating. Dark and dingy. The food was great but it's just tough to talk yourself into going.

The smell from the outside draws you in and the food you order tastes just as you'd expect! Always love coming to Williamson brothers BBQ!

Maybe I caught them on a bad/slow night - Halloween, but wasn't impressed at all. The onion ring starter was very good, so I thought hmmmm, this could be great, but the Brunswick stew was not good and the pulled pork BBQ was average at best. I did enjoy the greens. I may try it again to be sure, but... More

We visited on a Sunday for lunch. Service was great and food was good. I had chopped pork and chopped chicken and they were both good. Some in our group, who have visited here before, really enjoy their mac n cheese and said it was great as usual. Great atmosphere and smoky smell. Just what I want when I eat... More

Great food and huge menu selection. The staff and management is always courteous and most remember me by name. They have the best pulled pork and make their own sauce. If you're ever in Canton and want some delicious barbeque, Williamson Brothers will not disappoint.

The service here was great, the wait staff were very attentive and polite. The food was acceptable and had a good taste, but i think that their bbq sauce is just a little too spicy for my liking. I had the Saturday special which was beef brisket and it tasted just like prime rib- Very good. My wife had the... More

I have been very disappointed every time I visit. That's not to say it's not popular. I drive past this place every day and, especially on weekends, the parking lot is full. I wish that the food was as appetizing as the smoke that surrounds the parking lot. I've given up on it completely. The pork barbecue, the only reason... More

We ordered the slab of Baby Back Ribs and a Barbecue Pork Platter. Everything was excellent! Our waitress was very good as well. She checked on is often to see how our food was and to see if we needed anything else. We definitely recommend Williamson Brothers Bar-B-Q.

Love this place. We find ourselves here at least twice a month but more like 3X. The brisket is tender, tender, tender and the pork is cooked to perfection regardless if you order the plate or the sandwich. Once my smoked chicken was a tad dry and when I mentioned it to the waitress they took care of it immediately.... More
