-3.5 out of 4 Pigs
My ten-year-old son Cortland and I visited Sandfly Bar-B-Q last Saturday afternoon for lunch. Sandfly BBQ is located in Sandfly, Georgia in Newton’s Corner at the intersection of Ferguson and Skidaway Road.
The décor is flip-flop casual with a cheerful display of license plates (tags as I knew them growing up) bottle caps and a whole lot of pigs. Seating is available inside at tables and booths or outside on picnic tables and iron tables and chairs.
Sandfly BBQ offers at-the-counter ordering, with meals delivered to your table with a smile. Cort and I ordered the Pulled Pork Sandwich, Pulled Chicken Sandwich, Brunswick Stew and Ribs with sweet tea. A small selection of bottled beer and smaller selection of wines are also offered.
We started with the Brunswick Stew, very thick with corn, beans, diced tomatoes, onions and pulled pork clearly visible. The plastic spoon easily stood straight up when placed in the center of the cup. The stew was good and a bit on the sweet side.
Next we tried the Ribs. The pork ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender. I am a Southern boy (although temporarily misplaced in the Northeast), so I feel like I know my que. Sandfly BBQ’s ribs were some of the best ribs I have ever tasted. The sauce, herbs and spices from cooking clung to the meat, so no additional sauce was necessary. We both wanted more.
The pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwiches were also excellent. Served on a traditional bun, both the pork and chicken were tender and showed evidence of smoke infused deep into the meat from the BBQ process. We did apply sauce to the sandwiches. Sandfly offers three BBQ sauces, each made on premises. The first sauce is a mustard-based sauce, the second a spicy vinegar sauce, and the third is a traditional sweet BBQ sauce. All three made the pulled pork and chicken sandwiches finger lickin’ good.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Saturday lunch together and plan to return soon. In short, Sandfly BBQ is a casual BBQ joint that does not disappoint.
