Great food (I like the chopped barbecue) with tasty southern sides. I love their baked beans and banana pudding.

Countryside is a wonderful restaurant for good food, great staff, and amazing desserts. Although the main staple may be BBQ, all the food is really satisfying. However, the desserts are a sinful pleasure! Try the chocolate/peanut butter cake.

Good BBQ, friendly staff, plentiful portions, and didn't break the bank. If the parking lot is full, don't worry, plenty of room inside. Appears to be a local favorite. Stop on by!

Very good meat and 3 restaurant. Bar B Q and chicken dishes are very good. We had chicken strips which were very good and Bar B Q plates that were equally good. Would highly recommend.
