Fodor's Review

If you're hankering for a country barbecue joint, JB's will do ya. When you spot the sign of the pig (along with other rudimentary signs stuck in the ground), you'll know you've arrived. At this funky find, you'll find everything from beat-up pickup trucks to shiny BMWs in the parking lot. Most patrons choose the reasonably priced buffet, which consists of barbecue pork, apple-wood-smoked chicken, a selection of Southern veggies—usually including okra gumbo, butter beans, and coleslaw—and desserts like banana pudding. Barbecue connoisseurs know that JB's takes the big prizes at the competitions and that the ribs and the Angus beef brisket are top-shelf. To further flavor the smoky meats, sauces are served on the side. Arrive early, because dinner is over by 8:30.
