The food was mediocre at best.I ordered the Family meal and the ribs were pretty good but everything else really fell below my expectations.For sides we had Mac n Cheese, Baked Beans, and Fries. I really think this is some one just using the name and not the recipies of Myrone Mixon.

I’m from Georgia where Myron is from. I took my girlfriend to try some great BBQ and fixings. We had the chicken wings as am appetizer. They were excellent and the sauce was very yummy. I had the 3 meat plate with brisket, pulled pork and pork belly. Had Brunswick stew and macaroni and cheese as my sides. My girlfriend ordered the ribs with coleslaw and collards. I only got the pork belly and brisket initially. The waitress did take the pulled pork off my check and actually gave me some to take home. The meats were awesome. But my sides were not good. The Brunswick stew was so thick I could eat it with a fork. It wasn’t traditional Brunswick stew from the South. The Mac and cheese was a little dry for my tastes.

My girlfriend got the winner. The ribs and her sides were excellent. What I would expect from Myron.

They need to give out finger wipes for when you finish eating.

The flavor of the brisket was ok but the sauces add to it made for a good experience. The ribs were well seasoned but to tough for my husband to eat them. Loved the Mac and cheese, greens and coleslaw. Not on the top of the list to return as it is not the best barbecue we have had but may go back sometime if only for the sauces.

Good barBQ...but not great.
Ribs are dry rubbed, just the way I like them, but had very little flavor without a sauce on it.
Ribs were tender, but lacked the flavor of being cooked on a Weber Kettle or Green Egg.

The food was good; ribs better than chicken. The ribs were tender and juicy, with a good spice blend. The chicken skin seemed to have a residue of burned fat, as affected by direct flame, which made some of the skin not edible. Having said that, the chicken was tender and juicy.

As always, Myron Mixon's Pitmaster Barbeque was a fantastic BBQ experience; one made even better by the fact that the Winningest Man in BBQ himself, Mr. Myron Mixon was there in person to meet patrons. The whole hog was excellent, as was the pulled pork sandwich.

This was our 4th visit to Myron’s. It never fails to be delicious and the service is fantastic (which really sets this place apart). We got to converse with Myron and pick his brain on some recipes as well which we considered to be quite the honor. My dad was also able to meet his BBQ hero. Thanks Myron and Jose for hosting these events-the food is amazing and it’s so much more than just a meal-it’s an experience.

Pitmaster is always good. I wish they would have some healthier choices for the sides, like a side salad or a green vegetable. My husband and I like to get the rack of ribs and split it with sides. Plenty of food for 2 people.

Everything was delicious! My fiancé is from the south and he wanted barbecue for Labor Day. A colleague told me about Myron Mixon’s and I decided to take my fiancé there. We were thoroughly impressed with everything that we tried. The Lemon Chess pie was amazing!

Meal and service was very good, I am from the south and the bbq was some of the best I have ever had. The worse part of it was I was a little late for my reservation because of the poor parking set up. Had to pay to park and walk a ways to get to the restaurant my wife is handicapped. Other than that it was very good!

Since October of 2018, I have wanted another meal from this restaurant. The wife and I made another 5 hour drive and the meal was well worth it. The bbq deviled eggs, ribs, collards , and peach baked beans were everything that they were before.

The service was great and the food came FAST. We went there on a friday at 545 and it wasnt really busy. The staff was friendly. The cornbread cupcakes with maple butter were delicious. Also the egg rolls, i believe they were pulled pork, were great also. The kids loved the mac n cheese! The half chicken was lacking a little sauce, the white meat was a smidge dry. But there were good sized portions and we left happy and full. We'll definitely be back.

Walked in and immediately greeted by a smiling face. Took us to our table and then we were again immediately greeted by our server. She was helpful and attentive. Kept our drinks full and made sure we were ok during all times.
Food was amazing. Daily special of Philly egg rolls were amazing. Pulled chicken was to die for. Greens left something to be desired and were served slightly on the colder side. Brunswick stew was served puréed which I wasn’t expecting. But it was still very tasty.

The food was really good. We enjoyed our meal very much. The service was ok. Our waiter took a little while to come back to us. It was a little noisy but that is expected at a place like this. Overall, it was a great experience. Just wish there was more parking in the area so we wouldn’t have to pay $7 to just at the restaurant but that’s my biggest complaint.

It was fine. One person in our party had to wait for their entree, and the waiter told her he delivered it to another table. Very unsanitary.

We had very high expectations and we were extremely disappointed. Requested water and received warm water with no ice. Ribs were cool and fatty. Had much better elsewhere. Fries were good, beans OK. Served on a cafeteria style tray. Waitress was not friendly at all. Very expensive and not worth it. For being a champion, I would of expected much better.

Waiter took quite a while to take our order. After order taken, it took a while to come out. After we got our order it was cold. I've never been served cold barbeque - ever! We were visiting from out of state (Texas) and looked forward to eating at the establishment, only to be disappointed in not only the food, but the service as well. Also, the bold taste of the vinegar in the sauce was displeasing to me. But I'm only one person. My friends asked how it was and honestly, I advised them not to bother.

We can't wait to go back! Been wanting to try this place for a while and finally shared a great dinner with some friends. BBQ ribs and brisket were amazing and mac and cheese great comfort food. Pimento cheese and crackers were a great start to the dinner. Already planning our next visit.
