Countryside is a wonderful restaurant for good food, great staff, and amazing desserts. Although the main staple may be BBQ, all the food is really satisfying. However, the desserts are a sinful pleasure! Try the chocolate/peanut butter cake.

Good BBQ, friendly staff, plentiful portions, and didn't break the bank. If the parking lot is full, don't worry, plenty of room inside. Appears to be a local favorite. Stop on by!

Service was great. Food was ok. Smaller portions and not as flavorful as I was hoping. Pales in comparison to BBQ I've had in St. Louis and Houston.
