An unique small bbq cafe, one building is a dining room and cashier, another is another dining room, another is the kitchen, and in the middle is corn hole games! Food, service are above average. I'll eat there many times.

Was looking forward to good barbecue in the south and Evans was recommended on trip advisor. The restaurant atmosphere is small but cute and the service was quick and friendly. However we ordered the nachos to share which came as chips with cold, unmelted shredded cheese on top, and cold pulled pork (without any barbecue sauce in it for any... More

This restaurant is small but it's a great atmosphere and the waitresses are always super friendly and very attentive. I had the Boss Hogg with fries and the food was delicious. It was cooked perfectly and tasted... More

To me BBQ places are usually so average, not Evans! This place is great! Great taste, great price, great portions. Pulled pork so yummy. The squash casserole a must, along with the collards. Cute atmosphere and attentive service. We will return

Went there last weekend for the first time with my boyfriend. Food was bland and cold. Very small dining area.

You can tell this place is popular just from its drive thru line! We were lucky enough to snag a table in the small restaurant at lunch today. Our waitress was very friendly and did great keeping our drinks full. The hickory fries were good; tasty pulled pork, BBQ sauce, and cheese. Portion size was decent as was the price... More

This is one place you need to go out of your way when traveling on I-20 through Georgia to visit. You will not find better food anywhere! Every time I am close, I make a point to eat here.
