The sandwiches and sides are okay, but ribs are the reason to stop. Get them to go or dine in. They don’t take credit cards, but there is an ATM onsite. Closed Sundays and Mondays.

Williamsburg is on I-35 at exit 170 (Pop 1400) and what puts it on the map is Guy and Mae’s Tavern a mile off the highway. A cowboy bar with dollar bills stuck everywhere. The standout is the spectacular rack of ribs. They are smoked...More

I have gone to this place off and on for many years now. The barbecue is certainly original and interesting, and the place is very much worth a stop. The meat is cooked to perfection… The ribs literally have the meat falling off the bones,...More

I just love this place! Menu is brief but that's because they do those few things very well. We like the 5 spears for a dollar and the polish sandwich. The ribs are as good as I have ever had, but usually elect to take...More

Stopped here for ribs after hearing about it for years. Classic small town bar. Good service. Ribs are pretty good although I am not a huge rib fan. Fairly spendy at $19.50 for a full rack. Sides are a joke. Beans, Cole slaw or potato...More
