We stopped here on our way back home from celebrating our 34th anniversary in St. Simons Island. This was a great lunch stop! Our server was very friendly and attentive! And the BBQ and sauce was great!

We tried Papa Bucks BBQ, and we are so glad we did, it was truly amazing! From the service to the food!! I had the half chicken, mac and cheese and green beans, my husband had pulled pork, fries and fried okra, and we shared...a Brunswick stew (which was amazing), and the sweet tea was perfect! The ONLY negative I have is the green beans are canned. everything else was fresh and hot. We will definitely eat here again.More

Awesome bbq. I had the turkey bacon club sandwich and fried okra, which was a smooth smokey meaty glory! My wife had a pork sandwich and my son a chopped chicken sandwich. All were excellent. And..we got actually eat inside...at a dining table..with Air condtioning...and sweet tea! Sure beats waiting an hour at the zaxbys drive thru!!More

The barbeque here us very good. However the Brunswick stew and the slaw were ruined by having way too much sugar added. I thought I was eating fruit loops or sugar pops instead of Brunswick Stew! Please tone down the sugar!

This is one of our favorite BBQ restaurants. The brisket is the best & very good Brunswick stew. You will not be disappointed.
