Canon Restaurant Review: Bar H Barbecue, Royston, GA

Earlier today, I, along with my sister, brother, and sister-in-law, went to the happening town of Royston, GA to dine at Bar H Barbecue. I had dined at Bar H a few times before, so I pretty much know what to expect when I went there today. Bar H Barbecue is only open three days a week (Thursday-Saturday) and like the name suggests, specializes in barbecue food.Bar H Barbecue doesn't have the biggest menu in the world, to be sure. It does one thing and one thing only, barbecue, and if I do say so myself, they do it quite well.

We arrived at Bar H at around 6:30 or so, and seated ourselves at a table against the wall. The restaurant has a little more than half-full when we walked in, so it wasn't too hard to find a place to sit. The tables in Bar H Barbecue are adorned with plaid patterned table cloths. Each table has a pitcher of tea on it and a couple of bottles of barbecue sauce, in both hot and mild flavors. Instead of napkins, each table is provided with a roll of paper towels for patrons to use, which is probably a smart idea, as barbecue can be quite messy to eat. The walls of the dining area are wooden, and there are a few nic-nacs and signs hanging off the wall that gives the dining area a folksy, old-fashioned feel.

So we sat then, and our server comes to take our order. Since there's not a whole lot to choose from, the menu is one page long. Bar H Barbecue offers plates of pork, chicken, and ribs, which come with sides of Brunswick stew, coleslaw, and slices of bread. They also offer pork sandwiches, and each person gets a pack of potato chips alongside their order. Myself, my brother, and sister-and-law all went with the all-you-can-eat barbecue pork plate, only my brother and I substituted an extra helping of stew in place of the slaw. Since it's all you can eat, you can get as many helpings of stew or meat as you wish. Meanwhile, my sister went with the barbecue chicken plate.

We ordered, and a mere minute or so passed before we were served, which was a good thing because I was quite hungry at this time. Even though I'm not the world's biggest fan of Brunswick stew, I happily ate the Brunswick stew on my plate. I don't know what it is they do with the stew, but whatever it is they shouldn't change a thing, as it is just great. The pork was pretty good, although it was a bit dry, all in all. But if you put enough sauce on it, it will take care of that rather quickly. The sauce that I had was quite tasty and complimented the barbecue pork very well. Meanwhile, my sister was quite complimentary of both the coleslaw and the barbeque chicken, especially the coleslaw. As for the service, I can honestly say that I have nothing bad whatsoever to say about it, as we were constantly checked on, and refills of stew were not a problem or a chore to obtain, as the servers were all quite friendly and seemed eager to assist.

Overall, if you're looking for quality barbecue at a reasonable price, then Bar H Barbecue is a very good choice, as the food is tasty and each of our meals were less than 10 dollars. Overall, I'd give Bar H Barbecue an 8.25 out of 10. Well, thanks for reading.
