Family owned and operated since 1978, get ready for some straightforward southern BBQ. Do you have to guess as to what their special is? This relaxed joint will make you feel right at home as you’re wiping their delicious sauce from your face after downing their delicious, fall-off-the-bone ribs.

The pulled pork sandwich is second to none at First Choice. Their large smoker produces succulent meats in a no-frills space. Their tangy sauce is widely praised, as is their spicy macaroni salad. We especially appreciat4e their smoked sausage, something you don’t always see at every BBQ joint.

Family owned and operated for more than 33 years, they must be doing something right. Their pulled pork sandwich is recommended is not overloaded with sauce. Their hush puppies and secret sauce are recommended. If you’re in the mood for a rarity – BBQ ham – they’ve got it here.
