“couldn't believe they called it bbq”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

This is just a little shack about the size of a bedroom. the place was dirty behind the counter which made me wonder about the safety of the food. One day it was open, the next it was closed. The bbq was dry and nothing special to be sure. don't waste your time!

We stopped by to try out the BBQ after hearing about it from a friend. I ordered a 2 meat plate, had pork and beef, my friend had the same with pork and ribs. Everything we tried was great, so much food you can't finish it. After

“Local Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

We live in Adairsville and Love Characters BBQ. The meats are great and the sides are like mom or grandma made. I would eat there almost everyday if I could afford to.
