“you'll go hog wild”

There is nothing much along that long stretch of road from Savannah to Macon, but there is Jomax Bar-B-Q...  Pretty darn decent Bar-BQ. Damn good ribs, fairly good stew, good flavorful (chopped) pork butt, interesting slaw, good mac and cheese, regular country cooked cabbage, quick but tasty fried okra, flavorful cooked turnip greens and a couple of pleasant new owners. Ray and Cindy Huff are the new owners (about 14 months now), and have brought the place up to a new standard. Ray has been cooking and barbecuing all of his life and Jomax will allow him to fulfill a lifelong dream.  The beautiful old Southern Pride smoker was doing it's thang with ribs and butts and what looked like some smoky chickens when we were there. They make all of their own dressings and sauces and except for a few things try to keep the local farmer in mind when they provision for their restaurant. They have some good looking (we didn't eat dessert at noon) desserts. It's a really clean and inviting place. If you are ever driving to the coast, give 'em a try, you will be pleased.
