To me BBQ places are usually so average, not Evans! This place is great! Great taste, great price, great portions. Pulled pork so yummy. The squash casserole a must, along with the collards. Cute atmosphere and attentive service. We will return

Went there last weekend for the first time with my boyfriend. Food was bland and cold. Very small dining area.

You can tell this place is popular just from its drive thru line! We were lucky enough to snag a table in the small restaurant at lunch today. Our waitress was very friendly and did great keeping our drinks full. The hickory fries were good; tasty pulled pork, BBQ sauce, and cheese. Portion size was decent as was the price... More

This is one place you need to go out of your way when traveling on I-20 through Georgia to visit. You will not find better food anywhere! Every time I am close, I make a point to eat here.

We've eaten here half a dozen times or so and have always left happy. Fried fish, slaw and hushpuppies best we've found locally. Service is always extra friendly, with a smile. BBQ and sides gave been consistently good. Try pork BBQ egg rolls for something different.

Some of the best pulled pork I have ever eaten. All the sides are delicious as well. One hidden gem they have are the BBQ egg rolls. You won't be disappointed !!

We travel widely seeking good BBQ places. In Georgia, the state rated #1 in the nation for good BBQ, this place is at the top. Rather than one small eatery, this place has two log cabin-like buildings (one for take out and one for eating in) plus a spacious outdoor area for eating at cheerful turquoise, umbrella-ed picnic tables and...

My family and I love this place and we eat here maybe once a month. I love the sandwiches, the portions are big but not so big you have to take 3 days to eat it all. I've never really been a fan of the ribs, I'm not sure what it is but they just don't sit well with me!... More
