Pulled Pork was awesome! Had the ribs as well and they were good as well. This is a nice quaint little place for take out. Very limited seating so don't expect to have a sit down meal.

We grew up enjoying this great BBQ and the sauce is the special touch. Vinegar based and unique to Whitt's. We got some and took it to Florida for our daughter who just can't get this treasured meal anywhere else.

Great food, but....When a customer is trying to get your attention at the window, quit texting. Doesn't bbq sauce come with a loaded potato? Not given, not offerred. No butter for baked potato, just whipped spread/vegetable oil.

Whitt's Wendnesdays is the best part of my week! Every Wednesday I am sure to come by to get my pork sandwich. Over the years I have tried all items on the menu and not been disappointed once. Great place for BBQ!

Dang! Didn't expect much going in, but WOW. Meat was tender, the Mac n cheese was fresh, and the sauces plentiful. The ribs, though, we're definitely the highlight. Tender and juicy, without much fat. Was well worth the drive and I can't wait to go...More

All of the food is good. The BBQ, beans, chips, etc. The service is quick and with a smile. They are in a good location and the family pack is a good price on Wednesdays. May be best locally.
