Looking for great BBQ on a road trip and found this place. It's quite a distance from the highway but worth the drive. Walked in for a late lunch and was given the last plate of ribs. When the food was gone they closed. Great tasting ribs, beans and potato salad. Steal kabobs were good too. Plenty of food for the price.

Family owned and operated feels like going to your brother's house for dinner. Well, if your brother lived in a little quaint shack LOL. To do any upgrades would require such significant permitting (they are grandfathered in) that the cost would surely be passed on in the food. As it is, quality food at a reasonable price! Ribs are great but the Friday night steaks are some of the best I have ever had and I have eaten at restaurants all over the world! There is limited seating so arrive early. Love their sauce and Mom's desserts. Potato salad is good, beans are so-so (but I am very picky about my baked beans). A must try!

Everyone was like it is so good and I finally stopped in for lunch and I was like BBQ, is still BBQ, meat smothered in sauces and smoked.
Not bad but not my favorite.

These guys have the best ribs around. They are only open for lunch except on the weekends and have limited seating. You can call in a take out order if you choose. They have limited sides but they are all excellent. They also have daily specials and they are always excellent. It is family owned and operated and you will not find better southern Bar BQ anywhere. They also do catering and teh steaks on thw weekend are the best. They have caterd several weddings, parties, events we have attended and all the food is alays fresh, hot and prepared perfectly....Have Granger and Sons cater your next event with their hand carved steaks and tell me it is not the best you have ever eaten!!!!! Price is very reasonable for the quality. This is another place you go to for the food and not the decor. A small kitchen and sitting area with dirt driveway and parking, but do not let the looks steer you away....very casual eating experience
