We saw Allen & Son BBQ featured as one of the few remaining joints that actually smoke the 'cue, so we were eager to try them out. We were very disappointed. The meat was smoky, but not tender and very dry. Usually the hushpuppies at BBQ joints are good, not so at this restaurant. The service was slow. We do not know why this is a local favorite. We will not be back to this place.

Very good pork barbecue cooked on site. Good country style vegetables and deserts. Take -out and daily specials very popular as well as the take -out window. A local favorite.

Quite simply, the best barbecue I have ever eaten. They only use pork shoulder and the meat is of much higher quality than other BBQ joints. The decor is strictly no frills, but that adds to the atmosphere. My only complaint is that they allow smoking in the dining room.

Pros: pork shoulder, tasty sauce, daily specials

Cons: smoking, limited seating, not open on Sunday

It's hard to find much better barbeque if you're just looking for meat, but the sides are less than great. Oil and grease takes the place of flavor, and the barbeque portions are small, considering the price. Atmosphere is good if you're looking for something off the beaten path, but service follows suit...so don't be in a hurry, especially during busy hours.

In Short
If you park in the back of the gravel lot, you'll see the pit. It's plain, but the chimneys mean business. Inside, the plastic tablecloths have a red gingham design. Women with beehive hairdos and construction workers…
