Poole’s Bar-B-Q – Walk up order window and menu of sandwiches, sides, & desserts

Col. Poole’s Bar-B-Q is a southern roadside barbecue joint that you can’t help but notice as you drive by. It’s bright yellow and red building is prominently located along GA-515 and shares space with their unique “Pig Hill of Fame” – a hill covered with hundreds of painted wooden pigs. In addition to the Pig Hill of Fame, there are many pig puns scattered throughout the property (pig-a-boo, pig-moby-il, taj-ma-hog, etc).

The tasty “bar-b-q” (with choice of 6 sauces) and sides are served on styrofoam plates with disposable utensils. Indoor and outdoor seating is available. Brace yourself for very heavy republican politics – the owner is a very active member of the republican party and the walls and tables are literally covered with GOP memoribilia.
