Very good service, clean restaurant, very good food. It's not buffet place but there is a salad bad. A lot of selection on the salad bad. Menu items had a lot of choices and everyone enjoyed it.

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.
