Jethro's is by far our favorite BBQ in the area! They have 4 locations which each has its own specialty, yet they all have the same great platters and sandwiches to choose from. They have great drink specials as well. If you' 're looking for great BBC, look no further than the closest Jethro's.

Great pulled pork, wings, sides, bbq sauce, everything!
Breakfast - Best biscuits & gravy I've ever had!

the wings are extra large, but whether they are really good is hit or miss. The location near Drake is superior to the other spots, and breakfast here is a real treat!

Food was good. Service was crap. There was a wait for a table for our party of 3, so went to bar to have a drink the two bartenders ignored us. When we did get a drink she asked if we were waiting for table, when we said yes she gave us our drinks took our money and then ignored us again. Our waitress was much better, but it still seems like it is a fast food franchise. Food is brought to the table at lightening speed, Could it be they are only trying to appeal to the college students who want to feed and then go?

As if the bbq meat isn't good enough, try the spicy corn, macaroni and cheese, and baked beans! This food is finger licking good. Yum! Go early or late or be prepared to wait. There's always a crowd.
