We'd heard about this, been there decades ago and thought we'd love to have lunch on our way through the backroads. Don't bother. Interesting photos and knickknacks inside, but the food was really not tasty.

This place is everything a BBQ place should be. Ordered at the counter and the food was at the table before we could fix our drinks. I love vinegar based sauce and this was a good one. Several other reviews mention the beans and I...More

We live in Gray and have eaten here thousands of times over the years. Always good, food and service both. My favorite is the Brunswick stew and potato salad :)

This place use to be the best. Now it's no where near as good as it once was. The BBQ was dried out. The last few times I've visited this was the case and if not for the sauce they put on it I could...More

The atmosphere is old south original. The BBQ is good, but not the best. The Brunswick stew is more like Brunswick soup. Last time I eat here was as a teenager in the late 1960's. I remebered it as better. We were a little disappointed

Stopped in for lunch. BBQ was bland and sauce was like water with vinegar and pepper mixed in. Stew was decent but I prefer hash. At least the meat wasn't dry but would have been better with a little more flavor.
