Service was a little slow, coleslaw was adequate. Ribs were good. No one seemed to know why butter wasn't on the salad bar.

Friendly wait staff. Easy to get to. Food was good. Downside - facility needs a good scrub down. We probably won't be coming back to this location again.

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.
