I can't imagine not having a Scott's in every town I live in. This is clearly a town favorite but welcoming to newbies and tourists. You can have a quick meal or draw it out if you'd like. Plus...good barbeque plate for $6.00? Seriously can't...More

The food is great! Ordered the pulled pork which was tender and delicious (and a very generous portion) with potato salad and beans as sides. The sides were delicious too! We placed our order, got our drinks and just as we sat down on the...More

Been to many rib fests/bbq joints.... gotta say these were right up there. Tender, juicy etc. Staff was awesome.. felt like family ownership. Will be back if I'm in the area again.

This is a busy walk-up BBQ restaurant. You often have to wait in line at lunch. BBQ is decent, but not the best I've ever had. Pork sandwich was decent and brunswick stew was OK. Great friendly service and efficient ordering system.

If you're not in the mood for barbeque, try the chicken and stuffing or mac n cheese! Haven't found anything I don't like!

Great family owned business that does BBQ right. Pulled pork sandwiches are filling, juicy and have the right amount of smoke. Definitely a repeat visit location. 👍👍👍

Driving through and found this place online. Best potato salad I've ever had. Owner is a really nice guy and indicative of southern hospitality. You will not be disappointed.
