We ordered a variety of items from the menu. EVERYTHING sounded so good, how could you just order 1 thing. The corn muffins are AMAZING !!! The wings were great, pulled pork - to die for & the ice cream just topped it all off. We don't live to far from here & will definitely be back !!!!

I just really like the cornbread, especially with the flavored butters they offer it with. The sandwiches and burgers are very large so don't forget you appetite. The pulled pork sandwich is my favorite.

I picked up and order for my friend and I for lunch. I did not order ahead of time. I waited about 25 minutes from the time I ordered until I got our take out. We ordered a half rack with baked beans, a regular pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw, and a large fry. This was the first time I... More

We went to this place upon the recommendation of some real BBq conessuiors. ....driving up on it , one is not very impressed by the looks from the outside. We were unsure we should go in, as it is in the middle of "country" roads. Boy, were we happy we ventured in!!! Food was delicious and by far, the best... More

Visited the place twice now and I agree with one of the posts about the smoked chicken wings, really tasty and good and doesn't require any sauce for flavor (6 wings for $6). The portions are good size but having had the ribs and pulled pork, the flavor doesn't reflect how the meat was smoked and required one of the... More

I've been to Official numerous times. I generally get the bbq wings because there isn't anything like it where I live, which is 2 hours away. Yeah, you read that right... I drive 2 hours from scranton to eat at Official. This last time I came down, I got the brisket sandwich. I asked for the slices to come from... More

Big portions but the pulled pork is too sweet for me. I'll go back to try some of the other options recommended.

Ok so this place simply has the best brisket sandwich you can find in the area! We go with a group at lunch and the others get the pulled pork, burgers, wings, or hot dogs. They say those are all good. But I can't get past the brisket! Give this little gem of a place a try and you will... More
