Whitt's has the best barbecue, slaw, baked beans, and potato salad! Also the ribs and wings are so good, too. The people and the service are great! I have been a regular customer of Whitt's for a long, long time. They are the best barbecue place!!!

Whitt's Wendnesdays is the best part of my week! Every Wednesday I am sure to come by to get my pork sandwich. Over the years I have tried all items on the menu and not been disappointed once. Great place for BBQ!

Dang! Didn't expect much going in, but WOW. Meat was tender, the Mac n cheese was fresh, and the sauces plentiful. The ribs, though, we're definitely the highlight. Tender and juicy, without much fat. Was well worth the drive and I can't wait to go back.

All of the food is good. The BBQ, beans, chips, etc. The service is quick and with a smile. They are in a good location and the family pack is a good price on Wednesdays. May be best locally.

My husband loves the wings and I enjoy the bar-b-que. We've tried some of the veggies and although I can't rave about them, they were good. I love the convenience, it's like getting fast food but more like home cooking. If you require high maintainance, skip over Whitts, but if you just want good regular food, give them a try.

The BBQ and the turkey has a lot of flavor - you'll love it! And, the BBQ sauce is quite tasty too! The sauce I like is a thin sauce.

We frequently eat Whitt's Barbecue because it is among the best barbeque in town ! ....They have wonderful take-out dinners consisting of any of the barbeque meats, beans, slaw, chips, etc. They make their barbeque daily, and the pulled pork is outstanding !.....A great place for take-out!
