Wings and ribs at Demetris were really good, as well as their unique vinegar based dressing for their slaw. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Great local barbecue joint!

Claim to fame voted by Playboy best BBQ in the South. So there. Delish. Grilled veggies are a must. Onion rings and hamburger steak great flavor.
