Here at Little River BBQ, we like it when people call us old-fashioned.  We like it because then we know we're doing something right, because old-fashioned is the only way to prepare real southern BBQ. We formed this restaurant to share our love of bbq with the world. Our goal is to provide fine barbeque at fair prices. Our smoker is going everyday to provide you with the freshest meat. You won't find any frozen pre-cooked meats here- only the best bbq sandwiches,  pork ribs,  beef brisket, and  seasoned chickens.  We offer traditional sides such as cole-slaw,potato salad, and French fries,and of course our signature appetizer-fried dill pickles. Thats right, fried dill-pickles. Try them!
