The best sweat tea ever. I have eaten at Country's many times and I have never been disappointed. The owner is great and is concerned that his customers are happy. Love this place.

Country's is an icon of Columbus for good reason. I have been enjoying Country's BBQ whenever I am visiting the Columbus area for over 30 years and it just keeps getting better. The BBQ is excellent (don't make the mistake of getting in the take out line which which always has a lot of business). The entire menu is excellent--there... More

The atmosphere is great. Old bus station with a diner inside. The food was disappointing. At least it was cheap and I don't feel like I got ripped off.

Have eaten at Country's since the 90s and they have always been excellent till this time. Fries were good tea was great the Barbq was average. It had allot of fat and was dry. Service was ok. Will give it several more tries before I quit because it used to be great. Anybody can have a bad day.

We had dinner here and the service was good but we found the bbq was bland. It was fairly inexpensive for a lot of food, and the sides were good, but I can only say the meat was so so.

I think that this was much better before it became as popular as it now is. Plain smoked meat on a plate with a variety of sauces on the table. Not the kind of juicy finger licking good one might expect from the ads.

Was very disappointed in our meals here. The food was not very good. The service was equally bad! Would not recommend.

It's a family tradition to eat here when we are in town. My husband and I like The Conglomeration. It's a combo of pork, beef, and ribs. I like their butter beans & collards. My husband gets their collards & baked beans. We both get their cornbread and countdown to dessert...homemade amazing banana pudding. The atmosphere has some good 'ol... More

The bbq is average at best. There is better bbq in town. It smells amazing driving by but it is not that good. It does not matter what BBQ you try it is not that good. Their slogan explains it all. "That's how we like it" Their sides are good.
