Stop at Papa Bucks for some authentic barbeque in Metter, GA. At the Metter Exit on Interstate 16. Good pork; very good sides; great dessert too. Just good hometown barbeque.

You have to experience this restaurant. Some of the best BBQ in the south. The reviews tell the story. Don't pass Metter by on the way to Savannah without stopping.

Off the beaten path BBQ with the usual food....but fantastic French Fries and fries combinations listed under a section of the menu called "Scooby Snacks". The food is by no means terrible, just average BBQ. It's the friendliness of the staff that sets it apart!...More

Stopped here for lunch. I was told about it by a young lady at the welcome center. The food was served fast, hot, correct, and delicious. I ate the briscuit, baked beans and macaroni. The people were very friendly. I would gladly eat here again...More

Talk about "Down South BBQ", THIS IS IT! Dine in or take out. Can't be beat. Home of the "Pigzilla". Many have tried, few have succeeded.
