I often go on Saturdays as it's my weekly "cheat day", but they never disappoint. The ribs are superb. They're smoked and never burnt. The chicken is also great and never dry, as some smoked chicken tends to be. The sides are delicious, and I recommend the baked beans, potato salad and lima beans. The sauces are catered to your...

I'm a local, so I have tried them all in Columbus. Pepper's has the best pulled pork in town. Lean with a great smoke ring. The sides are great and the food is consistently good. The only reason I didn't rate it excellent, is because of the service. When the owners are there, everything seems to run fine; however, when... More

Every so often I come back home to Columbus, Ga and my wife and I RUN to this place. It's the most saught after Barbecue I can think of in the south. The ribs are to die for and they never seem to have enough (lol). As far as I'm concerned, this place is the best, one and only, barbecue... More

Great lunch spot. As we were walking in that was a group of firefighters walking in. We knew that was a good sign as the firefighters know the best places to get a good lunch. No frills, no kitschy stuff on the walls, just great BBQ. Authentic people, and real food.

Went here off ratings, which is what I always use. Basic beans and slaw with bread served. The ribs had a smoked flavor but nothing special. I always try ribs without the sauce first then add the sauce.The sauce was heavy in mustard taste and thin compared to thicker sauces. Young man who took my order was nice but other... More

If you don't want barbecue, go somewhere else. What they do is barbecue. Yes, they have a couple of other things, but it's a barbecue place. It has barbecue and stuff that goes with barbecue. It's Columbus, Georgia barbecue. Being from Columbus, Georgia, I think we have the best barbecue in the world. Heck, in Texas, they even barbecue the... More

This is a "hole in the wall" with limited hours but the food is delicious! We enjoy coming for Saturday lunch. All the entrees are excellent!

My wife and I have sampled BBQ all over the country and so we have a pretty good sense of the good, the bad, and the ugly. Now first of all I need to get a bias out of the way. It appears that most BBQ in the Columbus area uses a mustard-based sauce and we aren't fans of that.... More

As restaurants grow in clientele and sales, the needs of growing to 2 or more locations sometimes is approached, thus, missing that personal touch in food preparation...it becomes a busines not a place to eat good food. Pepper's is small in size, but the food is remarkably superb in quality, texture, flavor. You can tell that the owner and employees... More

They have a great lunch special that is right at $5. The parking isn't ideal. I enjoy the BBQ but my co-worker thinks they use too much tenderizer. I've heard the ribs were excellent but I haven't tried them myself yet. They have of of old newspaper article and pictures on the wall that I could look at for hours.... More
