“I live in Columbus, Georgia. Columbus, Georgia has great Barbecue. This is my favorite.”

13th Street Bar-Be-Que

Columbus, Georgia is a barbecue town. We like mustard based sauce on juicy PORK barbecue. (Pigs were made to be barbecued. There are places where they barbecue the wrong animal.) Pork Butts have fat in 'em. That makes them the right meat to slow cook over a pit of smoldering hard wood coals. The meat here is property cooked, completely cooked, slowly, and still juicy. The sauce is a mustard based sauce, so it is not sweet. Sweet ketchup based barbecue sauce ruins the flavor of good barbecue; however, it does make a good mask for dry, over cooked tasteless meat. So, since the meat is properly cooked here, you don't need to cover up the flavor.

This is a barbecue place. It is not a fancy eatin' place. Don't come here expecting a steak or any of them horse dovers. What you will get is great barbecued pork. Yes, they have chicken and beef, but why would you buy it when you can get pig?

The bread is regular loaf bread. Hey, you aren't coming here to buy bread. The beans are O.K., the Brunswick Stew is good, but you don't come here for anything but barbecue. If you don't want barbecue, go somewhere else. If you want barbecue, come here! (Unless you're a Texan or a Yankee and don't know what barbecue is about! Heck, up north, they think barbecue is a verb!!!)

OH! If you want cheap and good, get a chipped sandwich!

Came to Columbus, heard from everyone they were well known for Barbecue and to try 13th street. Service was very friendly and the prices were reasonable, just did not care for the food. Meat wasn't as tender as I would have liked and the sauce was like a very tart, vinegary mustard. Just wasn't to my particular liking

Had the pulled pork sandwich. Very good. Mustard based sauce as is common here. Pork was done to perfection. Tip for ordering, they'll ask if you want slaw and pickles. If you say yes, be warned, they go right on the sandwich, not on the side. Caught one of my party by surprise. Baked beans are really good. Clearly one of the better BBQ joints in Columbus - and Im steadily making my way through them.

Great little BBQ Works for me. One of over 30 mostly pretty good BBQ places around Columbus, Phenix City & Pine Mountain. Put our selection against anywhere. Choosing which BBQ along 2 mile stretch from Phenix City is tough. :-) , Smoky Pig, Mike & Ed's, 13th Street in Phenix City; to Countrys in Uptown. So naturally I'll have to share business from time to time. 13th St is always great for a BBQ sandwich & sweet tea.
