Description: In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.

“Delicious!!!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Loved the pulled pork sandwiches and the cole slaw was great! The banana pudding was divine!!! Only set back, the prices are a little higher...but so worth it!

“BABY BACK RIBS ARE THE BEST!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great barbecued baby back ribs (the best!) and then our favorite, pulled chicken. All types of sauces are provided. Cole Slaw and Baked Beans are some of the best also.

“Excellent all-you-can-eat pulled pork dinner.”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Our meal was delicious, our server was great, Ashley is her name; like the other review below this one, our food was not piping hot, it felt more room temperature, but it was delicious anyway.

The food we ordered was Ok the temperature was almost cold. We would have sent back but they were busy and didn't want to wait any longer. The wait staff was really friendly.
