The BBQ is very simple low & slow cooking. No rub, blah sauce. This is not where they shine. Stop by on Thursday for chicken fried steak. Very nice & the garlic mashed potatoes are great. The recipes are all Greek in background so expect...More

Wings and ribs at Demetris were really good, as well as their unique vinegar based dressing for their slaw. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Great local barbecue joint!

Claim to fame voted by Playboy best BBQ in the South. So there. Delish. Grilled veggies are a must. Onion rings and hamburger steak great flavor.

They also have a good southern food menu (pot roast, fried chicken etc.). It is a no frills, good food and good service kind of place. It is very much a local favorite so if you want lunch, get there early!

I've eaten breakfast here for over 20 years and it's always been great. Tried dinner there last night. Grilled hamburger steak was served barely warm and not good. After it was warmed it still wasn't good. Waitress kindly took it back and did not charge...More
