Barbecue is great and the sides are even better. Love the service here -- they make you feel like they're glad you're here. Everything is home-made. Authentic collard greens & banana pudding -- just what I grew up with. At a great price.

This place has THE BEST BBQ! Absolutely delicious cole slaw too. Looks like a great place to eat, but we have only had take out...about four times! Add their Dawg Gone Good crew and you are in for a great experience.

We like to try out a new place every time we come to Athens. This place did not disappoint. The sides were good home cooking to accompany the tasty BBQ and other meat options.
