This is a great place to stop with visitors after picking them up at the Jacksonville Airport. It is on the way back from the airport and offers some of the best local food around. They can accommodate groups as well. Usually very busy around lunch time so plan around that. Great way to introduce out of town visitors to... More

A little ways away from where I live, but totally worth the drive!!! My husband loves the BBQ here and I love the chicken fried chicken. The free hushpuppies are to die for and I love that they give you a whole jug of sweet tea for the table. This place is so cozy and super super cheap!!! One of... More

Everything about my experience here was really good. Good, down home country cooking served by great, friendly people at a great price. The hush puppies are awesome and my Big Happy burger was a perfect combination of hand-formed patty with just the right ooze factor. This is much more than a good place for barbecue. They have lots of other... More

Outstanding BBQ in the Jacksonville area. I stopped by myself after arriving at the airport on a business trip. The parking lot was full so I figured it must be pretty good. Sure enough I was not dissapointed. I ordered the pork sandwich with slaw. It was simply outstanding. I could have easily had another. I ate it just as... More

Visiting our Marine Corp Son & family in their new home and Thig's was 6 minutes down the road! Definitely worth the drive...pun intended. A truly country family restaurant tucked out of the way, packed full of great BBQ food fare. But don't apply as a Dishwasher, as all the tableware was plastic. Very "kid" friendly and parent pleasant. If... More

My family had planned a night at Mike's Farm but when we were told it was a 5 hr wait to eat and a 3 hr wait for the hay ride we left. We were 2 hrs from home so we decided we would give this bbq place a shot. It is a small family owed restaurant. Great service and... More

My whole family has been here for generations, and we all say Thig's is the best place to go for BBQ! Also love the Fried Oysters on the weekend! Breakfast is also a good thing to try here!

The food is absolutely amazing. Definitely a must try. They have an incredibly friendly staff and are quick to delivery your food. If you order take out, don't worry. They won't forget napkins, sauce, utensils, etc. Hush puppies are to die for, along with their pulled pork sandwiches. You are missing out if you don't stop in!
