Top 5 Back Yard BBQ Options

Everyone keeps saying that summer is almost over, but is it ever really over where we live? We're in Middle Georgia our seasons are HOT and less HOT. So here's a few more restaurants that didn't make it on our first part of Summer Dining but are just as good!

1. Butcher Boys Meats

This place has everything and more for your backyard cookout or anything you need to bring to one. Really, what's better than some cold brew, tender steaks and hanging with friends? They also have a huge assortment of honey, jam's and jellies! Which makes good hostess gifts.

Mon.-Sat. 10 AM to 7 PM.

2. The Fresh Market

This place makes me feel like I could throw a dinner party for Prince William and Princess Kate, if they ever came to Macon that is. There are so many wonderful dishes and meats to try and let's not neglect the wine section. It's pretty sweet! So if you're like me (and it's okay to admit this) just go here to pick up stuff for your cookout or where you need to bring something. It's easier and you'll impress the people who invited you. One tip (Put everything in Walmart bags, because you and I both know Walmart is no where near Fresh Market Status!

Mon-Sun: 8am-9pm

3. Seaways Seafood II

This place has some of the best looking seafood around. They are always friendly and helpful. It's mostly a wholesale seafood place, but if you're nice to them they will cook some up for you! There are no chairs or tables so you will have to take it home, but they do have hush puppies and coleslaw to complete a good fried fish dinner. Located off of 247 on Green Street if you aren't careful you will miss it. Great for cookouts and low country boils!

Tue - Wed10:00 am - 6:00 pm

Thu - Sat10:00 am - 7:00 pm

Sun10:00 am - 10:00 pm

4. Lil Benny's Smoke House

Kind of new to the food scene, but this place comes with BIG flavor. The whole idea is you can walk into Lil Benny's and walk out ready for a BBQ without you fixing a thing. They have ribs, chicken, sausages, chicken salad, bbq baked beans and so much more. So if you don't feel like fooling with anything but plates this is your go to place!
