    I have said it once and am going to say it again….
    You can’t find any better than HOLCOMB’S BAR-B-QUE! They have had to ship their food all the way across the nation to people who crave the goodness of the best old fashioned Brunswick Stew in the state of Georgia and REAL PIT COOKED PORK!
    The great State of Georgia’s Governor Deal has eaten there, along with other state dignitaries.
    They have also served the SECRET SERVICE,along with the F.B.I. at their place n Greensboro. President George W. Bush has even had it flown on AIR FORCE ONE back to D.C. with him…
    THAT is how GOOD this food is!
    And it all starts with the sauce!!!!

    I come from St. Simons Island to get Holcomb’s BBQ. It is hands down the best around. I always take extra home with me and let my friends there have a taste of what barbecue is suppose to taste like. Everyone says that Southern Soul is best but they haven’t had Holcomb’s yet. I recommend everyone go by Holcomb’s and try their barbecue. I promise you will agree that it is the best around.

    I’ve been eating Holcomb’s BBQ most of my life. They haven’t changed anything, but it’s like the saying goes, “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” Holcomb’s will always be the best BBQ around. Go Holcomb’s!!

    I think your voting system has a flaw. Every time some one votes for Butt Hutt, the other place gets a vote. May want to check on that. #suspiciousactivity #hacked

    We noticed that too Cliff. On one link the Butt Hutt posted on Twitter, it had the voting position of Butt Hutt above Holcombs. But on a link from Facebook, Butt Hutt’s voting results position shows up on the bottom. So I’m afraid every time someone votes for Butt Hutt it’s actually giving Holcombs a vote. Some folks are seeing Butt Hutt in the lead. Others are seeing Holcombs in the lead. Very sneaky.

    Has anyone checked with North Korea?

    Butt Hutt and Holcomb’s BBQ, some of the best people in Georgia operating them but for us HOLCOMB’S is at the top. Excellent taste, that has no comparison!!!! Love you Holcomb’s.

    Holcomb’s is awfully good. I taught for a year in Greensboro years ago, and Holcomb’s is the only place I’ve ever eaten that was as good as a little “hole in the wall” tar-paper shack place in the little town I grew up in. And when a Bar-B-Q place can equal the barbecue you grew up loving, it’s GOOD!

    @Cliff @Jeff and @Bobby – The way the poll works is that the vote leader is on top.

    amazing how Holcomb’s got 200 votes in less than an hour…I think the IP address of the voters needs to be checked. looks like a little multiple voting going on.

    I worked at Holcomb’s for 2 years when I was in high school. It will always be my sentimental favorite. They get my vote!

    03/22/2015 / 9:50 PM

    Been in business for 44 years! They must be doing something right!

    I love the butt hut, in fact I eat there way more than Holcombs bc of proximity. But it doesn’t get much more Old South/Old Georgia than Holcombs. The one in White Plains just north of Sparta couldn’t be more Classic Georgia. Great family that runs it and really good BBQ.

    Rigged??!! I voted for Butt Hutt and the vote was registered for Holcomb’s.
    I think we need a recount.

    Holcomb’s has been the best for many years!!

    Holcombs have been in business my whole life and I don’t ever remeber not being able to eat at Holcombs. They are the winner in my hook hands down!!!! It all starts with the sauce, but the staff that makes you feel like family just tops it off. We eat there at least a few times a month. I remember when I was in college and I had a teacher that would ask me if I would stop by on the way to school and bring her two gallons of Brunswick stew and 20 lbs of meat. I remember the first time she asked me she gave me a check and I said I don’t know if they would take an out of town check. She said as long as I’ve been eating there and getting this they know me and they will take the check. I picked up the first order and they oh yes she’s a regular. Holcombs all the way!!!!!!!
