1621-G Hwy 40 is the address.

A further reading of the site shows that the one coming to Kingsland will be only the second franchise location, the other being in North Charleston.

Does anyone know who the Kingsland franchisee is?

I've met the franchisor, Joe Adeeb. Nice fellow and a sharp businessman and restaurateur. I suspect that this might be another local source for good barbecue. I hope so.

Joe Adeeb bought Bono's from the Bono's years ago. Still owns and operates them.

Man, I hope this new place will serve CHOPPED barbecue. I used to love to order "half inside and half outside meat" at the original Bono's where that old Black fellow would chop it to order while you watched.

Chopped beats the hell out of sliced and pulled.

By the way, I'm sorry to report that "Right on Que" up in Brunswick has boarded up his windows and only does catering and to-go orders now. My guess is he is still making a killing in the St. Simons / Sea Island market. That is damned good barbecue - and chopped!

I tried willie jewels in kingsland. It sucks. There bbq has no smoky flaver. It taste like its steamed. I first tried at this event for john procter, aperson who ran for sherrif in our town. Almost no one at willie jewels bbq, but at the wonderful bbq from malsons bbq which is right down the street

Is Malson's that little shack up by Dairy Queen where Delbert Shelton used to be? If not, where is it?

By the way, since I last posted here, Right-On-Q has closed entirely. The building is for sale. Anyone know if the guy is in busines elswhere or has gone back to strictly catering.

I think Willie Jewell's is owned by the guy that formerly had the Larry's Giant Subs in WalMart shopping center.

When I passed Willie Jewll's at 7:22 PM last night ( a Friday) on my way home from Cracker Barrel, there were 8 cars on the property.I fgure 3 or 4 of those were employee cars.

On a Friday night? Not a good sign.

Denny's lot was full, by the way.
Trip its Saturday

Ate there last nigh, at 2000 the parking lot was full (all others businesses were closed), food was good, beer was cold.

That's right, I ate at Capt Stan's on Friday and WJ's on Saturday. Don't judge me.

Wife and I ate at Willie's Sunday nite. We both hated it. She had the pork dinner and I ate the sausage. The pork was cold with a lot of fat. The sausage was cold and not cooked enough. We won't be going back.

I have eaten here three times in the last couple of months.

The barbecue is St. Louis style, so the smoky flavor will not be there. I thought the ribs were tasty and the sides were good.

I eat at Bono's in Jax all of the time, and if you want the standard smoked barbeque drenched in whatever sauce, this is for you.

I happen to have enjoyed my trips to Willie Jewell's, don't care who runs it and will return. I hope others will too.

"The barbecue is St. Louis style, so the smoky flavor will not be there."

That sounds like what we would call attempted barbecue down south.

So, what does "St. Louis style" taste like?

Is it as nasty a NC style?
