Our first comment is that this is the most unusual barbecue restaurant you will ever find! We were driving on I-20 in East Georgia last week, where we stopped for gas in Crawfordville, and the BP station/convenience store appeared to be the only establishment for miles around. We saw the sign for Heavy's at the intersection, and asked the attendant... More

This was the second time I've tried this place and I'm done with it. The lady working there is not friendly at all!!! It's pretty much this attitude that if you're not a local then she doesn't want you in her wigwam breathing any of the air. The service is 100% of the reason I'll never return, they are rude...

I am a fan Bbq. I try to eat the local fare (tomato, vinegar, mustard, KC, etc). This was not BBQ. There was a strong smoke aroma when you walk into this dirty and dark cabin. I expected a BBQ meal and a dive location. I was expecting a full menu and truly smoked meats. However, the unenthusiastic lady at... More

Great welcoming atmosphere along with friendly staff. The building and its contents are unique being more of a draw than the food. Large portions but the chicken was greasy, the chopped pork just average. Not able to comment on the dessert because they were out of what I wanted to try. If you like average food the building and atmosphere... More

This is a very unique place but its uniqueness may be better than its bbq. Their bbq isn't bad just average. They have a friendly staff (there with a very large group and they handled it well) and a great atmosphere (part of the movie set for Sweet Home Alabama). Pork and chicken bbq and burgers. Popular place with the... More

Food choices limited to bbq pork and chicken, burgers, and fried fish with sides. Good and huge servings but not really special. Counter service was friendly. Ambience would be the calling card. Really unique local setting.

Love going to Heavy's when we're up hunting. The atmosphere is nice, old cars and such outside, taxidermy inside. The food is great as long as you want BBQ. My kid wanted a burger once...we were told 25 minutes...he got chicken :) Ribs, pork and chicken are great. I'm not a fan of the Brunswick stew but, my Wife and... More
