Well, it's out of the way to me. Stopped in for lunch on the way through southern IL, and it didn't disappoint. I'm under doc's advice to lose some weight, so I'm not frequenting places like this, but it was well worth the mild deviation...More

Locals recommended this place, then I researched it and realized how famous the BBQ is. I had the half slab with potatoes salad and baked beans. The ribs were so so, I know I'm going to get dinged for that remark. The flavor was good...More

This is the original location and Mike Mill's barbecue does not disappoint. I have eaten here many times. The service is good, the BBQ is fan-flipping-Taptic. Award winning and rivals many in the country. Good flavors, and fair prices. Love this place!

If you are close, make some time to stop here. You won't regret it. There is usually a wait, so expect that. Ribs are amazing, as was the pimento cheese appetizer.

Most out-of-towners will tell you that this is one of the great BBQ places in the USA. To be sure, it is good, but it's not even the best BBQ in Murphysboro. Locals will tell you to go to Pat's. 17th Street is gliding on...More

They have good BBQ, the baked beans are especially tasty. The pricing is a little high but if you aren't going to the trouble to make your own, this is a good option.

I would try calling them ahead of time to see if they have any, prior to you going there. Maybe paying for them in advance and have them hold them till you get there. If they would do that.
