“Don't go looking for a purty place, but the Boston Butts are wonderful”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This place is in an old building that was run down a long time ago. The proprietor of this business did nothing to improve it's looks, but cranks out some of the best smoked meats you'll find anywhere. He actually used to work out of a roadside stand a couple years ago. Boston Butts were less than half what he charges now, but it's still the best deal in the region. We stopped in a place in Kingsland, GA to get one the other day, and they charged literally twice as much as this hole-in-the-wall in Callahan.

Don't let the seedy atmosphere scare you away. Pull up to the drive through and get a Butt and some pork n beans, and you'll have your family meal for several days for under twenty buckaroo's.

“Good food”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

The food is great. You can't eat in, but it is very tasty. And, a good value too. We have ordered for parties, and have always had something left over.

“OMG this place is way more than good!”
Reviewed May 10, 2011

First let me start off by saying everyones tastes buds are different. WE have tried BBQ all over the US. Even two of the ones that were mentioned on tv shows like The Top 10 Best BBQ Joints....and let me say this...THIS PLACE WAS BETTER! It doesn't look like much, and if your into atmosphere it doesn't have it...BUT it has great food. The ribs were delish, so was the Chicken. I have to say we weren't crazy for the sliced pork, it was more pulled. But the flavor was good. The beans are flavored with Bell peppers, not my thing, but still better than Woody's. Their potato salad was a wee bit dry and also had Bell Peppers in it. I give this place a 10! You gotta try it!
