It's an old drive-in converted to a barbecue restaurant. Feels like going back to the 1950s in a good way. The counter personnel was very friendly and helpful as he went over all the menu for us. My son and I both had the chopped pork barbecue and three ribs. The ribs were very flavorful and meaty. The barbecue was... More

I live locally in the area of this BBQ joint, but don't actually eat here often. My son wanted to try it, so I went by and got a variety of dishes for the family. We had ribs, chicken, and chopped bbq, and I got a side of beans. The copped bbq was pretty good. No issues here. The chicken... More

We live in Perry and visit often. Local favorite. Meat cooked on site and vinegar based BBQ sauce. Family friendly atmosphere.

We saw that Grillmaster was the #2 place to eat in Perry, so gave it a try while in town. I know that bbq sauce and stew varies by region, but this place uses too much vinegar. Too much in the stew, too much in the runny sauce, and too much in the slaw. The smoked brisket, $12.99 a plate,... More

We found this great BBQ place in May 2016 and we're thrilled to get to stop here again today for lunch. The BBQ is wonderful but be sure and try the potato salad. It is wonderful!

I discovered Grillmaster during a visit to Perry, GA for a reining horse show. I was so taken with the unique "Larry Walker" BBQ sandwich that I've been going back ever since...which is weekly since I now have a horse trainer in Perry. The service is impeccable...the owner himself takes your order and checks on you during your meal. Make... More

Very good smoked brisket at this small roadside place. The coleslaw was also good. BBQ sauce a little watery but with the addition of Tabasco peppers sauce (on hand) and two thick pieces of thick white bread (supplied) made for a satisfying sandwich. Please note that there is enough meat in the platter for at least two fat ones. I'm... More

Lots of vinegar in all foods. Brisket full of fat. Turkey rubbery. Cake awful. Should have chosen Sonny's.
