The pulled pork and the beef brisket wee both tender and juicy and had a pretty nice bark and smoke ring. Three of the sauces were delicious, and the fourth was a bit too pedestrian for my taste. The baked beans had almost as much...More

Went to this location this past weekend and had an excellent meal with a friend. This was one of the remodeled restaurants that now have a small bar near the front door. Service was cordial and prompt. No problems at all

Service is poor. Asked for suggestions only got appetizers. Pulled pork was dry and had a bone in it. Sauces are good. Fried pickles are not my thing.

Pulled pork - great! Ribs - great! Brisket - above average! Sides - really good Sauces (3 choices) - meh...best of the lot was just passable. All in all, a good value for the money. Clean place, courteous staff. Would go again.

Been several times over the last few months. Service has always been great but the food was a little bit disappointing. However I must admit, every visit the food has improved considerably. My last visit was outstanding. Worth a visit for sure.

In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.
