I go there for the squash casserole. It's a good place to go with the family for casual dining. My grandson always has the same thing--large pulled pork, mac and cheese, and beans.
1st experience, last experience! Server started off pleasant, but when food was brought out she quickly ran off without ensuring the orders were right. I ordered the 5 oz Grilled Chicken Jalapen-ya-bidness with sweet potato tots, which came out as a beef burger instead. While the server took my plate back she bickered with me stating she never heard me say that I wanted chicken, which led me to believe that she assumed I wanted beef. The chicken sandwich finally received was smaller, tough, hard to cut into and chew, and not as stacked with the toppings as the previous burger sandwich. My tab given to me was $13.91 (menu price $7.99). The server once again bickered with me. I ended up talking to the manager, who was rude and inconsiderate. I showed him the menu with the $7.99 price that I had been given by my server, rolling his eyes, he snarkily stated only burgers were 5 oz. not chicken. After continuing to argue with me, I finally cut my bill down to $6.96, which I paid.
Building is very nice. Parking was full but building did not have but two people in the Resturant eating. It was around 1pm. Food was ok to dissappointing. Got a pulled pork sandwhich asked for toast all they had was loaf bread or small buns both pulled directly from bags appearing to still have the reduced sticker on them. Also got Mac n cheese and Brunswick stew. The sandwhich was ok but it was not warm like I like those kind of sandwiches it was cold which I was surprised. Mac n cheese was warm. Brunswick stew was warm. The food was served in paper trays with the Mac n cheese sticking to the paper peeling it a little or to be fair it might have been my spoon trying to scrap it of the paper tray. Good to go for atmosphere but food was very average.
Great BBQ, Buffet, and a friendly staff! My favorite lunch restraunt in Athens!
I agree with the previous reviewer, the price is nothing to write home about. But it is in line with almost every other chain like this one. They do turkey, ham and beef barbecue as well as the usual pork. They have a hot (it is) and regular sauce. I mixed them to get the type I prefer. I will eat here again, but I will have to be feeling flush to do so.
Excellent food and service both dine in and take out. Go here hungry, or be prepared to eat leftovers. I love the gravy fries and their burgers are cooked perfectly.
I love the BUFFET....... The best fried chicken and squash casserole in town.... The banana pudding is to die for...... Great staff and wonderful prices...
The meat was great, the price es were fine, and the service was friendly and they provided 6 sauces, but none of them were traditional barbecue flavor. some were mustard, one wad slightly spicy, and one tasted really, well, interesting, but I was wishing for some plain old barbecue sauce.
Don’t be fooled into thinking this is a barbeque restaurant: it isn’t. You will get pork (and very lean, at that), but after I specifically inquired of the staff if their meat was smoked, and was informed that it is, I was quite disappointed to learn that they are misinformed. There is no smoky flavor apparent in the meat, nor are there any grills to be found on premises. The hash, though not watery like many Brunswick stew recipes, is also comparatively flavorless, as it’s not made with smoked pork. Once you throw in the unsalted fries, the industrial park feel to the dining rooms, and the inflated price, what you end up with isn’t a restaurant meal, but a caterer’s plate. This is the kind of stuff you might wolf down while standing around in golfer’s pants, but it’s not something you’ll want to eat again. Real barbeque makes you want to go back the next day. I just wanted to go find some real barbeque after eating at Harry’s. “Stuff to eat, just down the street.”
