If I'm not too hungry I'll get a pulled pork sandwich. If I'm hungry and/or wanting left overs for latter I'll get the ribs they are excellent. Their beans and slaw are also very good!

I was invited to try out this local bbq joint and told it's been around for years. Actually, the premises we were on was the new one and that they had moved from their old place not too long ago. Inside was nice and new, looked like a relaxing place to eat some pork. My girlfriend had a hard time... More

The portions are plentiful. Food was inexpensive, we spent about 16 and were full. They have great servers and great fries. BBQ was really dry though. It was a country, homey kind of place with long lines at the drive through. It reminded me of a hometown restaurant I used to go to as a child.

The bbq pork sandwiches are great but I come to ChooChoo for one reason only - the phenomenal chicken salad sandwich served on texas toast with lettuce and tomato. It is life changing. There are no chunks of onion or celery - just pure delicious smoked chicken and mayo. Trust me, skip the bbq, and get the chicken salad. You... More

I drive by this place probably everyday and don't think I have ever given it a second glance. Well Tuesday I was getting gas and caught a strong smell coming from there. I decided I should give it a try and I am every so thankful that I did! I ordered a pulled chicken BBQ sandwich, onion rings, and a... More

We purchased a restaurant.com certificate for a different location and accidentally visited this location. The manager/owner was very rude and simply said "wrong one sir" and stomped away. The young woman at the window never so much as cracked a smile. We would have been willing to just stay if the guy had not been such a jerk.

We apologize for your experience, and we hope you will give us another opportunity. We understand that it is sometimes confusing because there are so many different Choo Choo locations that are all individually owned and operated. We are always looking for ways to improve, so we will be using this as a learning opportunity. More

I work a block away from the Appling location. Since I started this job the office has ordered from there almost every Thursday. I fact my week feels off unless I've eaten from there on Thursday. This location is more than their awesome BBQ. They have weekly and daily specials. I have never eaten anythere I didn't enjoy. Plus the... More

No place to sit so be aware of that. You walk up, they serve through a window, full takeout. There may be a picnic table out front. But as for the food, pretty darned good! Nice serving sizes, all kinds of combos, great sauce, everything from BBQ and ribs to kid meals. I started eating there after getting a coupon... More
