Ribs on the grill at Mess A'Round BBQ.

The Mess A'Round BBQ 


Folks come here for Southern-style barbecue ribs and chicken that taste heavenly, rubbed in spices, marinated overnight and slow-roasted until succulent, with the option of a wet mop of tangy red 'cue sauce. Located in a onetime ice cream stand, Mess A'Round is painted bright green with a few stools at a counter and battered old chairs out front. Tammy Whiteside is the heart of the place with husband Ray a barbecue master who works his magic out back at a grill he built himself. The ribs and whole birds are smoked over charcoal and oak for pit flavor. Be sure to add sides of mac and cheese or potato salad with collards and corn bread. Fresh baked pies and banana pudding round out the menu. At night the parking lot is lit up and people get take out to eat in their cars.
