When we are driving on 59 this is our stop for BBQ and jerky. The chopped brisket sandwich is a must and a slice of marbled cheese. We purchase the thick jerky, we enjoy the peppered bison, turkey, and beef.

BBQ is good, sweet tea is just ok, but the sweets there and the jerky are really good. Plenty of parking and they have meats that you can cook at home that look really good. Lots of variety

Always stop at Praseks when traveling through the area. I had a chopped beef sandwich that was a little too salty but still pretty good and my wife had a chicken plate that was very good and the kids had pulled pork that was excellent.
