Best Restaurants near Ellijay GA
There are lots of Barbecue Restaurants in the North Georgia mountains. One of my favorite is Bigun’s BBQ just north of Jasper Georgia on Hwy 515.
It’s funny how most of the great places to eat are connected to gas stations and this one is no exception. Don’t let the one stop shop for you and your car fool you, this place is awesome!!!
About the Food:
The portions are large and the lines can be out the door at times. It has been a local favorite, since it opened back in 2008. They offer a large variety of perfectly cooked homemade smoked specialties right from the fire pit out back. Specialties of the house are pulled pork, ribs and smoked wings. The side items are what really make this meal come together.
Bigun’s BBQ has some of the best collard greens, mac and cheese, Brunswick stew, green beans, broccoli salad, and baked beans. You can round it off with Texas Toast or homemade cornbread. Did I forget the Fried Pickles? You have to try them!
We have a large family, so the best value for us is the Bigun Family Pack. Even though the offer is listed as a Take-Out meal, you are free to stay and eat it there. For about $27 you get a pound & a half of pulled pork, 3 pints of sides and a hefty portion Texas toast or even sometimes cornbread, if you ask real nice. This feeds all my hungry family plus leftovers and even a few extra treats for my pet boxer, Roxy.
