Walked across the street from OPMC to pick up dinner. Mistake. Customer service as great. Food ready when I got there. Ordered sandwich with sliced pork. It was more like sliced fat. Pulled all the fat out and was left with nothing. This is not...More

This restaurant has been revamped and looks like new. The portions are generous and the pulled pork sandwiches are great. They have the best iced tea in the area.

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.
