I had the rib plate (3 bones) and 2 sides (baked beans and collards). The ribs were meaty, not very much smoke and sauced. I give them a3.5. The baked beans were sweet with maybe a nutmeg flavor. Not a fan. The collards were outstanding. My meal was a 3.5. My wife had pulled pork which was a 5, green... More

We ate here at 1:30 AM. That's nice. An alternative to Waffle House after a long night of fun at the GA Theater. I had the pulled pork plate with greens and yams. Banana pudding is great. It's not fancy but it's perfect. There are some good people here providing others with some wonderful comfort food.

I was there for lunch break, had smoked pork and potatoes salad, it was great and really cheap! I am Italian, but I needed to try this typical USA food!

Delicious!!! Great food. Just how barbecue is supposed to be. The mix of sweet and heat sauce was amazing. The greens were on point! I liked the fact they have different sauce choices. The meat was very tender. If I'm ever back in Athens, I'll be there!!

I have passed this BBQ place so many times and am really sorry that I did. This hole in the wall is one friendly place, from the time the owner, Mr. B greets you until the last smile as you walk out the door. Oh, and the smile you will have on your face the rest of the day after... More

Very disappointed. I don't know what other people call "good BBQ", but this was not. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich, it was full of sauce and mushy. My husband ordered the rib dinner. It was 3 ribs, that he said tasted like they were cooked in a crock pot. The sides were not hot. I ordered the blackberry cobbler,... More

This restaurant is totally fine for a no frills meal, the sausage and pulled pork were tasty, and the Mac and Cheese rich and creamy. They don't have a liquor license so no beer with your meal. The proprietor runs it with her family so there's a friendly feel to the place. If you're in a rush and just want... More

This place is great for your late night food needs. They have solid meat items and good ribs. They always have a good selection of sides and their mac n cheese and green beans are solid. It's open at other times as well and they have indoor and outdoor seating.

I really liked the pulled pork sandwich I got here. It was $5 for a smallish sandwich, on a typical hamburger bun. The meat was moist and had good flavor, and I got it with a combination of their two barbeque sauces. Nice. Just had two small bites that had some fat. I also ordered a small cup of peach... More
