Never quite know why to expect as the reviews are often all over the board. We trusted the locals- they said this was the best breakfast in the area. The BBQ is also great- I had their Baby Back ribs and they were done to...More

If you want a good southern style breakfast, then try Demetris BBQ. It has a lot of choices including BBQ omelet, cheese grits and French toast to name some really good food items. It tends to stay busy in the mornings but service is fast....More
