Homemade chips - 'nuff said! We both ate every one. Others have commented on the great, friendly service and I have to add our kudos... More

We stopped on our way from Atlanta to Ohio. We had bbq. Pork and beef brisket were good. Their home made chips and okra were great. Brownie was awesome too. You get a lot of sides but you get very little meat.

I had the basic pulled pork plate. The barbeque with the smallest without too much fat and the hot bbq sauce on the table was flavorful but not overpowering. the cut corn and coleslaw were good also

I was at Bradley's Pit BBQ, waitress and other staff were very nice and more than willing to help in any way possible. Everyones meal came out perfect. The Spare Ribs came out a little dry but the waitress over heard me telling my family and talked to the manager without me knowing... they corrected my order. I was shocked... More
