The food was delicious. The portions were generous. The service was fast and friendly. There were a couple of mistakes with our orders, but the mistakes were quickly corrected. We would love to eat there again if we are ever in Metter.

Excellent spare ribs, moist and tender, sauce not too spicy. Great atmosphere. We wanted breakfast, but just stepping in the place and smelling that fabulous BBQ smell changed our minds. The sides are locally prepared, unusual, and original.Will stop there again.

Went in at 1245PM for lunch. Ordered their special of country fried steak and veggies. Steak was tough. Server never came back near my table. It was busy but not that busy. Veggies were really good. The steak looked good, just too tough for me.

Wife and I stopped on way to Savannah had the pulled pork and pulled brisket with onion rings. All I can say we were glad we stopped by. Delicious.

Instead we opted for the Beef Brisket which was dry with not much in taste.Wait staff was friendly, however the waitress we had... More

We really enjoyed our meal here, I had the special, wonderful fried chicken with their wonderful home style veggies and my husband had the BBQ. We come this way at least once a year, and JoMax will definitely be on our list from now on!

Look like bbq but for my taste. Swimming in a sauce that has no flavor and the pork sandwich is plain no smoked taste at all and was nothing special. Hubby had the brisket platter and it was fair. No taste with this food. Sides were better than meat. Place was crowded but I figure it's the only bbq in... More

Great BBQ at JoMax. We have been stopping in with Joe for nearly 30 years. Whenever our travel schedule allows we make the stop in Metter.
