Back to the subject, not Jay. The standing in line to order is not so great because of the price you pay and the time it takes. It is expensive for what you get. The BBQ pork was okay. I wouldn't have a craving for it. I agree with the other post that it is expensive for what you get. An order of onion rings for $4.50 is an indication of the overly expensive items. I wish all businesses the best of luck and hope this one can survive. It may be that the over head requires the price.
Thanks.

The ordering at the counter did it for me.

Speaking of a sucky ordering-at-the-counter experience, Panera Bread is the absolute worst. Complete bedlam. Like cattle in a loading chute. Sucks.

Moreover, the sandwich ratio of thick bread to fillings is ridiculously high. And yet, they are quite successful? Go figure.

Every time I went by there, hoping to try it, it appeared to be closed - and I'm talking from back in August of 1993.

Exactly. Thanks. They had a really cool, humongous, high-tech, stainless steel smoker. Did you ever check that thing out?
Must have cost them a fortune. Do you know if they are still in business?

I think some of their wood was pecan. No shortage of that around Claxton. Jack's here in Camden uses some pecan wood.

Been there three or four times and it was not that way....maybe you just had bad luck or my tolerance for fat is higher....

You know, sadly, that is more often than not the case.

Wtiness the decline of Carey Hilliards after Carey died in a plane crash flying back to Savannah from his Charleston locations.

Carey's life was heavily insured.(I know because most was through the general agency where I was the brokerage manager, so don't even go there,A-holes.)

The kids almost immediately all bought their own cigar boats, etc.
The stores have been mediocre at best ever since the originator died in that crash.

Look at what happened to Twin Oaks in Brunswick. The 'new" owners(years ago now) almost immediately bricked up a perfectly good indoor, brick pit, went to outdoor portable smoked, and immediately blew away all good will value with a shitty product.

Yeah, successful succession in a family run restuarant is more the exception than the rule for sure.

A notable exception is Johnny Harris' Restaurant in Savannah.

I still go there every chance for the battered fries. I don't know of another place that even comes close to those fries. Never had better.

Here's their menu.

I see they have a good bit of outdoor seating. I sure hope they have some indoor seats. I don't do outdoor dining. Hell, even Bedouins eat in their tents,cavemen in their caves, etc.
Has anyone heard an opening date?

Yeah, they were good. I'm pretty sure that was the first place I had ever heard of or had battered fires.

That old fella that tended the pit with that two pronged, customized, pitch fork really knew his barbecue.

Twin Oaks is still damn good. Don't listen to that Dumbass Moreno, he don't know wtf he speaks of. His mind tends to wander, and he just rolls along for the ride.

I've always liked Twin Oaks. If they only would slightly grill the buns so things don't become a mess. Is it still in business?

If it is, you can bet it has changed ownership yet again.

I noticed the other day that the old Ga Pig Barbecue shack at Exit 29 looks like it is about to fall down. How those follks stayed open with a 6 inch gap between the bottom of the front door and the floor always amazed me.

Yeah, I've never left Georgia. I'm sure I would be shocked by Third World conditions.

"accommodations" by the way.
