There is a Tesla supercharging station here, so we decided to stop by for some food. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the food that we got. It was delicious and reasonably priced. Would certainly go there again.

This is a clean,friendly restaurant that has no idea about cooking BBQ. The ribs I had were tough and undercooked. The onion rings were poorly breaded and greasy. As a BBQ restaurant they have a long way to go.

In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.
