This is a place near home. The staff is good, however the food I'd just average. The BBQ is not special but tasty. Uses preservatives which I try to avoid. Ample parking and easy access from the main road. We use it for a fast pick up but only when in a rush.

I stayed at the hotel next door to the Circle B Ranch BBQ restaurant and went to dinner with my co-workers. They wanted me to try the barbecue but when I saw the sign about the fried chicken, I was all-in. The chicken did not disappoint, it was outrageously delectable (as was the mac n cheese, candied yams, potato salad,... More

Fried chicken takes 30 minutes after you order. It's so worth the wait. Yum...The sides are just as good. All made right there. Homemade baked beans and Mac n cheese are the perfect sides to go with this fried chicken; I've not had the likes of since my great grandmother.

Sure, the chicken is good. And the sides. And house made dessert. But no one does BBQ like Bubba. Pork. Smoked. chopped. Delicious. Nothing fancy or citified about it.

On our way to 12 Bones we discovered Bubba J’s Circle B Ranch. I almost passed, because I confess, eating at anything attached to a Citgo Service Station is typically off of my radar. I am so glad my hunger ruled over my practice. “Bubba J” has been cooking up incredible ribs, chicken, et el for the past 11 years... More

Food was like eating at Granny's on Sunday. They did not have everything on the menu available (Sat afternoon at 2 pm) but what we had was really good. Wife had BBQ plate which she enjoyed. I had excellent roast beef carved on order. Sides were very good. Slaw is locally famous and did not disappoint. An elderly couple came... More

This is the best food in western North Carolina. The bbq contains almost no fat and the sides are outstanding. I order all of their sides to serve at Christmas dinner and other special occasions. I love their cabbage and green beans and their Brunswick stew is the best I've ever had anywhere. It can be a little confusing initially... More

This is a hidden dream for roast beef lovers. You see BBQ on the outside sign and don't know that there is real hand carved roast beef, fried chicken, and lots of real good sides waiting for you on the inside. All the food is home cooked tasting, not out of the can tasting. The only thing that could be... More
