The salad bar is wonderful, but we always pair it with pulled pork. Which is always great. The server's name was Earl. And he loves the Dallas Cowboys. Earl has been there a long time and always gives great service.

In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.
