As you pass by the cornfields, wheat fields and appropriately enough, hog farms, you will eventually arrive in the middle of nowhere and then you are there, @ Branch's BBQ that is. It is really worth hunting for but I strongly suggest you have a GPS to guide you. Branch's, since 1962, cooks the whole hog over a mix of split oak and hickory that's burned down to the coals. Inside, you will find the "spacious" dining area that seats 6. I had an excellent slaw-topped chopped pork sandwich with several perfectly brewed cups of sweet iced tea served from a large glass Mt. Olive pickle jar. For dessert I had a great home-made piece of sweet potato cake. Branch's also has baked chicken and fresh pork rinds. Everything @ Branch's is made fresh. They are only open on Friday & Saturday from 10:30 am until they sell-out, so get there early, Enjoy!
