Meal was pretty good...all the soul food fixins -- potato salad, candied yams, barbecue, baked beans, greens, cornbread. Pretty good food! Service was pretty poor -- order wasn't ready after call-in and 30 minute wait, but atmosphere was nice.

Usually a 15 minute wait, you sign yourself in. There is a bar and also over a dozen TVs to watch the game. Food does not come out quick, because you can’t speed up a BBQ. Pretty much you have the options of Brisket, Links,...More

We had dinner at Everett & Jones BBQ as a last minute decision and was not disappointed. The BBQ Brisket was fantastic and so were the yams. It is one of the best BBQ places I have been to.

This is the place for amazing BBQ. The menu is typical BBQ without any fluff. I get the brisket with two sides and cornbread, medium hot BBQ sauce, and I can’t imagine anything more delicious. Meals are relatively expensive (around $18-25) but every main and...More
