Bilbo’s Bar-B-Que – Bremen, GA

The third (and final) stop on the Bankhead Highway Barbecue Run was unscheduled (I was heading to Tallapoosa – guess I’ll save that for a part two) and involved a u-turn after catching a small sign saying “barbecue” out of the corner of my eye.   On a hilltop, and not really visible from the […]

Jones Bar-B-Q – Temple, GA

Stop number two on the Bankhead Highway barbecue run was at Jones Bar-B-Q in Temple.   According to Trip Advisor, Jones Bar-B-Q is the seventh best restaurant in Temple – it’s just ahead of Wendy’s, Subway and McDonald’s.   The bar, in Temple, does not appear to be particularly high.  There is another Jones Bar-B-Q: Jones Bar-B-Q […]

Evan’s Barbeque Company – Villa Rica, GA

Evans Barbecue Company is a fairly new entrant to the west Georgia barbecue scene.   If I recall correctly, there used to be another ‘cue joint in the curve on Bankhead as you come into Villa Rica, in this exact same spot.  The newness and difference from other West Georgia barbecue places stands out in […]

Gabe’s Downtown – Douglasville, GA 

At some point in the last few months, a new restaurant has opened in downtown Douglasville.  We first noticed it when we went to look at the 1950s McDonald’s “set” they had built for the Ray Kroc biopic that was filming here last month.  We were excited to see they had opened – one of […]

Bubba Mac’s – Douglasville, GA 

I’d been talking about going to Bubba Mac’s for over a decade, but there never seemed to be the right time.   They had been located on Highway 92, just north of downtown Douglasville, since 1997 but we never seemed to make it in (there location was not conducive to my traffic patterns, but they’ve developed […]

Iron Horse Station – Villa Rica, GA

Sitting on the couch, indecisive about dinner, I threw out two choices, each of which were received with equal indifference.  So we headed west, originally considering a visit to J&W BBQ, but not wanting to fight the construction traffic on I-20.  We ended up, instead, at Iron Horse Station, in a building we had eaten […]

Chat and Choo – Villa Rica, GA

Today’s adventure takes us to the Chat and Choo (See what they did there? Choo versus Chew? It’s across the street from the railroad tracks), downtown in the City of Riches. In case you didn’t know, Villa Rica was the home of Georgia’s first gold rush, in 1826. As we parked and were crossing US […]
