Worth the time it takes off the interstate. We ordered take out and got good hot fried okra and french fries. Glad I tried the redneck eggrolls, recipe could use some tweaking, but a great idea. The pulled pork sandwich had potential--pork was good, but...More

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.
