We stopped for dinner and it wasn't quite up to standards. They now REQUIRE that pulled pork have their choice of sauce on it. Also they served a baked potato that when opened was obviously old and reheated several times. They used to be one...More

I needed something quick and stopped for dinner and ordered the new Pitmaster Ribs and they were good. I also ordered a combo plate with regular wings and ribs which was also good.

In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.
