My business associates and I eat here, from time to time, the food is good while the service is hit or miss. They have recently started advertising their plate of the day, "Chicken and Dumplings 11:00 until gone". Which sounds horrible to me, like the later you arrive the older your food is.

We visited Pruetts Bar B Q Restaurant after a doctor's appointment on December 7, and will definitely go there again. The food is fresh and delicious and the portions are very generous (Be very hungry when you go to Pruetts!) The restaurant is very clean and well-managed. The staff is friendly and efficient, making their customers feel welcome and important!

Got pulled turkey and pork, macaroni and cheese and hush puppies to go and it was all delicious. What I like the most is that their meats are smoked but not heavily smoked, just right. Their red sauce for the pork is great. Friendly wait staff. Generous amount of sauce for the pork which was appreciated. Would definitely return next... More

Called in for take out of their fried chicken. It was ready on time and just amazing. I had the two things and two legs special. I also had some sweet potato fluff, hush puppies, and beans. All side items were great as well. The restaurant had a great rustic theme, and I wish I could've gone back another night... More

Found this place after driving around looking for a decent place to have lunch. The atmosphere was your down home dining experience and the service was good and in a timely fashion. My. Husband and I had the pulled pork platters which was tasty, I've had better but I've also had worse, but the sweet potato fluff was to die... More

I'm picky when it comes to barbecue. Can't stand super sweet, thick sauce, and it seems like a lot of restaurants have issues with dry meat. Not Pruett's. Their sauce is light and tangy, not sickly sweet at all, and the meat is perfect. The fried okra is also great, next best thing to homemade. Very good portion sizes all... More

I ate here solo for dinner on a business trip and ordered Chicken and Dumplings with turnip greens and creamed corn. The chicken was dry, but the dumplings were tasty. The cornbread that comes on the side is not impressive, but the turnip greens are pretty decent.

I've been eating at Pruett's for over 35 years! I've never had a bad meal yet. Their service is great and all their food is wonderful. Their menu includes so much more than barbecue if you're not in the mood.

Thank Diane D
