Description: 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.

Very good service and good food. We had pulled pork, BBQ beans, side salad and FF. Asked for extra crispy fries but did not receive extra crispy. Over all food was good. We will be back next year. We also had a hard time finding this place with the address listed, it needs updating.

BBQ choices were pretty extensive. Staff was as friendly and efficient as could be. Large portions cooked well. Nice variety of sauces. It may be a franchise, but we don't have any of them up north and it felt more like a local place.

I should have known what to expect from a franchised owned establishment, but I decided to try it anyway. I phoned ahead to ask if they had a full bar, since none of the websites have any reference to one. The response was, "We don't have some stuff to make certain drinks with, but yes we have a bar." I walked into the bar area, and when I looked at what selections were on display, I knew I was in the wrong place. So if you expect quality beer or quality bourbon with your BBQ, try local establishments! They seem to have a excellent selection behind the bar!

While visiting in Somerset KY., we dined here several times for lunch and dinner. Wait staff was attentive. Very large portions for the money. Several excellant sauces to choose from. Will return when back in town or where we might see one elsewhere.

I sat in the bar area and enjoyed an early dinner. They have a great variety of sauces. The brisket was tender and tasty! The service was excellent, and the staff was very, very friendly. I got plenty to eat at a very good price. The restaurant was clean and tidy. I will be back!!
