This is a Southern BBQ joint. As far as I can tell, if you enjoy BBQ in its various presentations, this place should be another pleasant experience. The pulled pork and the brisket are both, I think, excellent. Other members of my family have had...More

Really good bar b que and onion rings. The only downside is a lack of a mustard based sauce. But it's still the best place in Athens for bar b que. Highly recommended.

My whole family loves the brisket and I believe it is the closest to what you get in Texas in the entire Athens area. I really like the curly fries and the choice of vinegar based or mayo based slaw. I do not like stew,...More
