Came here on a recommendation of great fried chicken and was very happy with a great plate of fried chicken. The crust was flaky and almost melt in your mouth with every crunchy bite. I️ personally prefer a bit of spice in the coating and this is lightly seasoned but delicious and moist. The fries were well crisped and fresh cut. The salad is nicely dressed and plentiful. The only down side was packaged crackers and a slice of white bread with the meal. Better bread would have made the experience exceptional. The service was friendly and attentive and very local in feeling.

Thank Mark S

Glad you liked the chicken! We pride ourselves in the fact that we still prepare and fry our chicken the same way my Grandfather did in the 40's. Please come back soon!

This was our second visit to Barbecue Inn. I would describe the experiences as consistent, generous servings of food, and friendly service. The salads are fresh and come with generous portions of dressing. We have had chicken, catfish and fried oysters. Our favorite is the chicken. The restaurant has been around 50+ years...so obviously they have a good product. The waitresses wear uniforms.
Each time we visited, the restaurant was full, but primarily an older clientele. In other words, this underscores their consistent, generous servings and friendliness....their guests have been coming for 50+ years.

Been going to Barbecue Inn pretty much my entire life. Great old standby. The food is always consistently prepared, clean, the staff is very friendly and professional. Some things never change, because they don't need to!
