This place looks like a 1950's grocery store from the outside but don't be fooled. The BBQ Brisket is enough to bring tears to the eyes of good Southern Folk! Every time we have been, there are plenty of locals getting food but you also see cars with tags from every state in the U.S. and Canada, long haul truck... More

Being from Texas I thought we had the best meat and BBQ, but Gary Lee's has changed my mind. We always get the Boston Butt when family comes by and it has been a hit with everyone. Perfect flavor and falling off the bone! We like their house BBQ sauce too. We highly recommend this place. Easy to get to... More

Picked up a pound each of brisket, pulled pork, and sausage. Impossible for me to pick my favorite. They were all excellent! You could see the smoke ring on the brisket and pork and the flavor was amazing. The sausage was as good if not better! Their main trade take away, it is counter service with just a few tables....

Gary Lee's is well-known for fantastic smoked meats here in the Golden Isles. The brisket, ribs, BBQ chicken and chopped pork are fantastic! My whole family loves Gary Lee's smoked sausage, which he gets from a local farm. Great food for a quick lunch, but even better for picking up to take home for dinner when you don't feel like...

Family was coming to town for a reunion, I purchased two cooked briskets for the meat entree, both were terrific! Guest were amazed at the flavor and tenderness.

Gary Lee's (US Hwy 82 West, 1.5 miles past I-95) is a simple, old-fashioned place. In many ways it looks like a throw-back to an earlier decade. But do not let that deter you from eating their delicious offerings. I've had their BBQ chicken, a quarter of a chicken at a ridiculously low price. Most recently I enjoyed a Pork... More

This has been a family run business as long as I can remember. I love that you can get your steak or chops cut just like you want them. Gary's is also the place to get your Barbecue and other great smoked items. I usually stop by 2 or 3 times a week. Several questions below are designed for a... More

I have dined at Gary Lee's Market for 6 years. He has consistently served the finest "dry rub" ribs I have had anywhere in the world! This is not fine dining. Be prepared to sit a picnic or old dining room tables and chairs. However all of the BBQ is outstanding!

I was in the moods for ribs and decided to try Gary Lee's. It was a great decision. I arrived right in the middle of the lunch hour and there were about 20 people in line in front of me. It didn't seem to take more than 10 minutes before it was my turn to order. It would be nice... More
