Whites BBQ is hands down my favorite. It has its own flavor with out the thick sauce. Whitts has 2 different sauces mild and hot. Hot is hot. They have the best Baked beans and sweet tea in the country.

Can't speak to much other than the BBQ pork sandwich (which is excellent) because everytime I go, I can't talk myself into getting something else. They offer plenty of meat on the sandwich & usually quick service at the Drive - Thru! A definite "Must...More

Casual Dining, Fast Service, and the very best BBQ. My favorite sandwich around. I love the Brunswick stew served during the winter months.

Best BBQ! Tender Pork and mouth watering chicken. Super friendly service. Price is excellent. And the Sweet Tea is Southern perfect.

We had the short ribs with sides. Oh my goodness, those were THE best ribs ever. We also had some of the white macadamia nut cookies, they were so rich and big you can hardly eat a whole one.

This is by far, one of the best values in town. Consistently good food & love their lunch boxes! Just sorry they don't have a sit down area to eat. Drive thru only.
