We had a large group, booked in advance. The food was only fair and the service was worse. Cannot recommend this establishment.

I have been eating food from 306 since they opened. First, it was the ribs that had me captured, then it was the turkey. Now it is their wings and their Brunswick stew. This food is great. The staff is very friendly and accommodative.

Ribs were tough, beans were cold, and roll was straight out of the bag. I had heard good things about this restaurant, but my experience was not good. I have not been back.

I went for ribs which were good. The only complaint is that you have to order at the desk and then sit as there is no wait staff. The ribs were good and soaked in sauce. The ribs were smoked and then you can add...More

Real honest to goodness BBQ - perfectly smoked meats - what more can you say!! Always hot and fresh and some of the best smoked wings you will ever eat. You owe it to yourself to try this authentic Alabama BBQ.

We were looking for a quick bite on our way into Athens and we're pleasantly surprised! I had the hot wings and they were the best I've ever had! Sides were great too: white beans and brown sugar green beans (different but also excellent). I...More
