We went there looking for good BBQ, unfortunately, we did not find it. This is a place that has no table service. You order at the register and they call you when the order is ready. When we arrived they had a sign up saying they didn't have any brisket or pork. Well that shut down the two things we... More

We love southern barbecue. We were excited to have "old school" barbecue. There was nothing special about this. The pork was good, but not excellent. The wings did get an "A". It was downhill from there. The brunswick stew tasted exactly like Campbell's vegetable soups out of a can with a little, and I mean little bit of meat in... More

Eat good barbecue, thought the sausage was great and the brisket melts too, and hit the PokeStop. Win win.

Old school barbecue? Good people? Great atmosphere? This place has it all, their sauces are unmatched and with some of the most moist pork and smoked turkey in the business, Willie Jewell's is a sure bet. If pork and turkey aren't your flavor, try the chicken tenders, they're sure to bring you back.

I cannot say enough about the food here. This place is so good for anyone who likes southern style bbq. I'm not going to say that it might change your life cause it's gonna. Seriously the meat is always tender and juicy and everything else is well made and tastes like it should.

We were thinking about stopping for lunch on our way to FL, and we saw a billboard for Willie Jewel's BBQ restaurant in Kingsland, and we decided that would be the place to go. My husband loves BBQ, and we enjoy trying new places. We didn't have a chance to see the address on the billboard, so we winged it... More

Recommended by the receptionist at Hampton Inn as her go-to BBQ. This is 2nd store, the other is in Jacksonville. Clean, great BBQ, all is homemade. Note: they close at 9 pm on weeknights. We arrived at about 8 pm, party of 4 (family), tried a little of everything (pulled pork, brisket, sausage, slaw, greens, etc.) It was all very... More

We love these guys so much. Food is fantastic and everyone is friendly. Try the Barnyard burger and the fried pickles.

We enjoyed a delicious meal with wonderful BBQ plus excellent sides. The desserts of banana pudding and peach cobbler were a wonderful treat!

We were on the road and wanted a change of pace from the usual chains for lunch. The food was just OK. Some items were better than others, such as the corn fritters and pulled pork. The "smoked" turkey had no smoke flavor. The smoked sausage had an odd flavor - worse than any pre-packaged from a grocery store. The... More
