Have driven by Old Clinton on previous trips to the NE Georgia mountains and planned this trip to be able to stop for dinner. From the outside the look was classic old south BBQ. Entering did not sway the belief. Saw couple tables of locals, so was having a real good feeling. But then the illusion began to fade. Although... More

There are not too many choices for BBQ in Milledgeville. Old Clinton is one that is open every day. They also have delicious BBQ. Lately, the coleslaw had been lacking-- but was DELICIOUS on this visit. They also have awesome French fries; in fact, I ordered a 2nd serving as I watched a football game on the tv. The restaurant... More

we ordered ribs, coleslaw and Brunswick stew; the rib portion was generous with very little fat; the flavor was excellent; the coleslaw and Brunswick stew were average; the cost for two rib plates and no drink was about $21.00; we will stop here again and try some of the other meats

I usually go inside and order my food at Old Clinton-- whether I am eating in or getting something to go. I decided to utilize the drive-thru for a change on this visit. I was quickly acknowledged when I drove up to the menu/order board. The gentleman was friendly and readily answered my questions. I received my order within a... More

We have tried this BBQ restaurant several times and I am sorry to say I do not care for it. With that being said, I realize that all of us have our own idea of what BBQ should be and this just isn't what I prefer. I drive by this place very often and I see a lot of cars... More

I was in the mood for BBQ; and on a Wednesday, there are only a couple of options. Old Clinton consistently has good BBQ. This visit was no different. The coleslaw once again, however, was not good. The gentleman asked me and I told him the truth. He asked if I would like a refund or something fried. I told... More

Pretty good barbecue and this is coming from a North Carolinian! I enjoyed the bbq plate and the corn fritters. Everything came out nice and hot. And I liked the fact that they also carried Diet Dr. Pepper. The rest of the family finished their plates as well so I think they earned positive votes too. Good little place.

This was our first visit. The drive thru person was very helpful in getting our order correctly. We were pleased with the turkey, pork, Brunswick stew and beans. We will become regulars.

Came for dinner once. BBQ was fine (not the best I've ever had, but solid). Sides were interesting and good. Counter service was really friendly. Would do again, after trying the other BBQ choices in town.
