This BBQ joint is like something out of the sixties! No pretence, just fast service, slightly greasy cooking, no credit cards accepted and uplifting pictures on the wall. A big yellow menu board above the counter offers a huge range of options (and look for...More

We love to go to John Boys and get their shrimp plate. It is a quick, affordable meal at night when you don't have time to cook. Thanks John Boys for keeping meals good and affordable!

This place stays packed for a good reason. The food is reasonably priced and so good! Another Elkin restaurant that has a great variety on the menu! Cash only but again well worth a stop at the ATM prior to your visit!

They have seafood, burgers, chicken, etc... typical American food. Little on the greasy side but good. We love the Buffalo chips with ranch. But beware they only take cash!
