I love absolutely everything about this place except for their coleslaw. It's almost as good as my Mom & Dad's...almost.

OUTSTANDING BBQ! Pulled Pork and Spare Ribs where on point! Wow is it good! It was a little disguised in among a gas station strip. Worth a trip!

I've been to the SP twice while traveling up and down I75. The most recent trip I stopped w friends for lunch.

Very nice, clean and... More

We stumbled on this Bar-B-Joint while traveling down I 95 in a search for something different than fast food. It's a small restaurant along side a gas/mini mart station. When you get out of the car you smell Bar-B- Q and it gets better from there. It's good old fashion southern fare! I had the pulled pork plate with sides... More

What a surprise gem for us. Stopped here on way back from Amelia Island because I wanted some barbecue. We pulled up and were hesitate as it was sandwiched between gas stations and didn't seem to have any activity. Knowing a shiny facade doesn't guarantee kick-butt food, we went in and were warmly created by staff and the owner, who... More

Tiny place located next to a gas station. Great pulled pork sandwiches. Not much on atmosphere, reasonable prices.

Wow! Wasn't sure what to expect, but I was thoroughly impressed with the food. That sliced brisket is some of the best I've had in the Savannah area. I'll be back soon!
