BBQ is top notch. The brisket is served hot moist and perfect. The pork is great, tender and just enough smoke. But service was a little lacking. Asked for sliced pork got chopped.Asked for fries got potato salad. Service was also slow, waitress didn't check back after orders were brought. Food is great but would've been perfect if we would...

Service, good food, convenience, you're treated like kin folk, well, like kin folk that you want to see more than on holidays, anyway. Ribs are excellent, try the hamburger steak for something different.

My wife and I really enjoyed our meal. I had the BBQ Beef sandwich and she had the BBQ Pork sandwich. Servers were very fast and the food had a really great flavor. As we were leaving a man in the lobby kept trying to talk to us. I feel he was wanting to borrow money. I did not look... More

Never disappointed with the food however seems like they've cut back on the serving portions. But the quality is still superb. This is a slab with sides. Close to $40. Not complaining by any means. Portions smaller prices still the same. 😕😕😕

Had a planning meeting and let the staff choose lunch. I don't live in Georgia and wanted to spoil em. But BBQ it was. I was impressed. Moist, smokey, not drowned in sauce. It was the best BBQ I'd ever had in Georgia. I'm a KC BBQ fan but I must confess, this was good. The fries and beans were... More

The best sweat tea ever. I have eaten at Country's many times and I have never been disappointed. The owner is great and is concerned that his customers are happy. Love this place.

Country's is an icon of Columbus for good reason. I have been enjoying Country's BBQ whenever I am visiting the Columbus area for over 30 years and it just keeps getting better. The BBQ is excellent (don't make the mistake of getting in the take out line which which always has a lot of business). The entire menu is excellent--there... More

The atmosphere is great. Old bus station with a diner inside. The food was disappointing. At least it was cheap and I don't feel like I got ripped off.
