Food is good but a bit pricey. Counter service and lots of seating, both inside and out. You can smell the deliciousness all over town. The food won't disappoint.

Glad you liked the food and sorry you felt it was pricy. We make everything from scratch and unfortunately it costs a little more than pre-packaged foods. John

Great Southern style BBQ, ribs fall off the bone (to dream about), beans are good, pulled pork can give you a little indigestion if eaten late (old timer issue). Basic restaurant with table service and nice staff. Love the BBQ!

Puny Johns has several different types of BBQ sauce, and they're all good. The meat was tender and the beans were awesome.

Food was just ok. Portion size was a little disappointing. Bit of a dump. Friendly staff....they just don't know how to cook. We won't be back. Ever.

This was the fourth time I have eaten here since they opened. The first time was excellent the second a few months later was good also. The third time the quality of the food dropped and I thought anyplace can have a bad day. This...More

Stopped in for a bite during our visit. Nice selection of food and reasonably priced. Good pulled pork and hot dogs. Recommend grabbing a sarsaparilla.

Both my wife and I had the brisket sandwich and it did not disappoint. We loved it. The sauces were also great. The atmosphere was fine, nothing super noteworthy, though. Food was delivered fast. We had green beans and spicy mac-n-cheese for sides. Not sure...More
