Great pit stop for real food that's fast. Friendly staff and ribs that fall off the bone. Generous portions of food and hearty sides.

Simple home BBQ. Friendly clean and delicious! I had teh wings (best I have ever had) Amazing flavor, great smokey taste and teh sauce is a 10! Beef bottom round was a break from the norm, but the texture and taste out of this world. Why eat at a chain restaurant when you can support the locals and get food... More

We pretty much always stop here when traveling through Tifton if it is near lunch time. Service is always good here. Prices reasonable. Food is comfort food, southern style. Not just BBQ. We last ate here about a week ago and will continue to do so.

We stopped here passing through Georgia. I had a bbq pork sandwich which was very good. The sauce is sweet and on the table. The sides were very good, including the fried okra and sweet yams. My kids loved the chicken tenders andbtib plate. They also have excellent sweet tea. Pick out your dessert before dinner or you will not... More

Tripadvisor gave this the number one spot to eat in Tifton as did the locals we spoke to in town. I hsd the rib eye,seasoned nicely but I asked for med,came well done,therefore it was dry. My salad greens were brown,although it was loaded with cheese,tomatoes, cukes,peppers,onions,black olives. Ate a bit of veggies on salad. My baked potato had a... More

If you like eating greasy heavy BBQ in an atmosphere that is comparable to Chinese takeout place, then you will be right at home. The sauce even didn't help the meat go down to my stomach. I had to leave half of it on the plate. I have no idea why the place is so popular. Perhaps the price attracts... More

Baked potato didnt taste right. I had 1/2 a slab of ribs. There was lots of fat and they tasted mealy. One of the worst... More

We stopped on our way south on I-75. Based on Trip Advisor reviews we decided to try this place. The service was great! I had a Ribeye and it was so flavorful - I ate every bite (and I was stuffed!). My traveling partner had the ribs and loved them. She ordered a half rack and it was huge -... More

They are most known by the local community for haveing the best steak in town. I myself am partial to the cucumber salad and smoked chicken. They have deserts that include Carmel cake and thin layer chocolate cake like a good southern grandma would bake. Well worth the visit. Oh and if it's Mother's Day you will want to arrive... More
