Description: 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.

“Disappointing Service”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Food was good but the service was severely lacking. Drinks were repeatedly requested but were not brought to the table until the end of the meal. Wait staff was not very attentive.
