Had a work lunch, so ordered brisket, pintos, green beans, German potatoes, potato salad, cole slaw, fried okra, and fried corn nuggets. Everyone raved and asked "Where is this place? We've never heard of it?" Martin's smoke pit is OLD, and OLD means lots of...More

If you are a Local, this is the place you know, to get really good food for a good price. All the BBQ is great. The German potato salad is excellent! Cold beer is available to enjoy with your meal

This establishment is a ‘historical’ landmark, and it has been in business since 1925. We wanted to eat some yummy BBQ, and so gave this place a try. We make it a rule to read everything that is posted on the outside of the facility...More

The place is small. The food was good. The server was smiles and nice. The BB-Q had a good flavor. We went there for an Office Birthday Lunch. The price was low.

Sliced Brisket, ask for sauce on the side. Find out how a barbecue joint stays in business for 90 years. And some of the staff have been there a LONG time, so don't be impatient, they will be there (god willing) long after you've left....More

Slowest service in town. But worth every second. Would wait longer. You could drag a piece of bread across the ceiling and it would taste good. Nobody makes better BBQ. Just wish I had time to eat lunch there during the week.
