That "question" is a curious fella'. You forgot Bono's. Like them alot. Sticky Fingers is pretty good. But, to me, the best is The Georgia Pig, Exit 29 in GA. Their sauce is vinegar based and delicious. People from up north stop there and buy all their sauce to take home. They also press the sandwiches. Ain't nuthin fancy, an old log cabin with picnic tables.

Oooo Kaaaa. There is a problem with just saying a restaurant's name because many are franchises and the owner's sometimes use cheaper ingredients if not monitored. The Bono's @ Merrill Crossing is good but my favorite Bono's is Beach Blvd. near Hart Bridge Xway. The one at Atlantic Bch. is good too. I mean, it's ALL pig. My least favorite is Sonny's with their thin sliced pork and ketchupy sauce. I like chopped w/outside meat. YEAH!

The one on the Westside (Lane Ave) is repulsive.

None of the franchises know anything about making BBQ. Sliced meat with sauce poured on is not BBQ. A few are attempting pulled pork BBQ with a vinegar based sauce, but none of the around here have got it right yet.

I like The Pig and I've been eating there since I was like three. Sonny's and Woody's are alright, but I dunno, I only to to Woody's for Trivia Night just to see people that I haven't seen in years and I only go to Sonny's if my former drama teacher is treating us.

I refuse to even step foot in that place. I like to drive down the street to Cross Creek, an amazing steakhouse.

I didn't mention Jenkins. because we talked about them at length ON ANOTHER THREAD!(I was yelling at myself. I'm old and get confused) Jenkins IS the favorite of many and I like it. Spicy mustard based sauce poured directly over tasty ribs, moist chicken, or delectable beef, cooked to perfection on a bed of white bread beautifully displayed on wax paper. How was that? It's been a while but I remember Checkers was pretty good. And, what's the one on Dunn's right at the split/curve?

Why wasn't Bono's an option? Why is Rich's on here... I thought they closed down. Merrill Road Bono's is good. I love their Sweet BBQ sauce. But I do have to admit it isn't as good as it was before the new owners. And I think they raised the prices. Did they? Or they have the same prices but less portions.
