They have the best Hamburger Steak I have ever had! The BBQ is great but I enjoy the vegetables and stew as well. I am counting down the days till the Brunswick Stew is back. The breakfast is wonderful also... but it is always crowded...More

The restaurant manager tried to overcharge me and blamed it on "out of date" menu prices. Buns were stale. Manager did reluctantly agree to menu price, but was difficult. If you want Golden Rule barbecue, visit the Irondale location. Stay away from this store.

Yes, its you basic BBQ. Still good ole BBQ. With the upswing in pricing its great to still see a business that try's to control its cost and not pass every thing onto the customer. Nothing fancy, just good ole cooking.

A good local BBQ place. Lunch/or dinner is very good, but the breakfast is by far my favorite. Large portions and cooked just the way you like it.......service is good as well.

We arrived there for our last visit about 15 minutes before closing time and the restaurant was completely empty on an extremely cold winter evening. They treated us like royalty. I had the sliced port sandwich and rib combo and my wife had a hamburger....More
