It's okay, nothing special. Hard to get over they don't use plates and serve up a glop of BBQ on a piece of wax paper as you pass downline. Not worth a second trip for me. Seems the college students like this place.More

Husband and I just running errands and ran into this place. What a great decision. The BBQ pork and baked beans were awesome. The slaw on the pork was nice and not too overwhelming! Really recommend this place if your in the area.

We went for a casual family dinner. The place has a great app, but the cafeteria line got very bogged down by one group that did not look at the menus before they got to the food. I had the pulled pork and burnt ends,...More

Came to Gainesville and decided to have lunch here before heading home. You order at the counter & they’ll bring it to your table when ready. Food was good, but my Cuban sandwich was a little overdone (bread was charred). The staff is friendly &...More
