In the back of a Marathon gas station is the best BBQ I have ever tasted. Walk up counter, order, pay and have a seat or take it out. Can't wait to get back, worth the two hour trip!

Best barbecue you will taste anywhere. The brisket is amazing. Great for breakfast also with homemade corn beef hash and blueberry pancakes. Staff are always friendly. However, During UF football home games this place is completely packed.
