Glad to hear that you tried some of my favorite spots in town. Believe me when i say you picked the right meat and tree. Mama’s and Papa’s is good, but Nick’s is hands down the best for my money.
FYI: just recently the owner of Mack’s was killed by a drunk driver form out of town. The place has not been the same. This may explain why you were disappointed.
Nonetheless, gald to hear about your eats.
Thanks again all. Back from Brunswick. I was super busy, had to get up at four or five each morning (not my specialty), had two rental cars break down in the same day (after the second one, I lost my ability to reason and tried to hitchhike to my next meeting in 95/95 weather, and no, no one picked me up), but I got to a few places.
I managed to make it to Mudcat Charlies for fried shrimp. Nice, sweet local shrimp. I had bbq at Mack’s, because it was close to where I was and someone said that it was started by a former Twin Oaks employee. It wasn’t good. Had the rib plate, the ribs were dry and the bbq beans were bleh. Brunswick stew was nice, though, subtle and not too sweet, and the bbq sauce was tangy with mustard. I couldn’t decide whether I liked it or not.
Had lunch at Willee’s Weanee Wagon. Loved the pork chop sandwich and slaw dog, but loved even more the signs that boasted, "Internationally renowned pork chop sandwich," and "$2000 if you can produce a better tasting pork chop sandwich in Glynn County." A very sweet employee named Stacey pulled a dollar out of her pocket when I was surprised and embarrassed to find myself a dollar short. In my defense, no prices were posted anywhere I could see. I will send that woman some flowers.
And had dinner at Nick’s. Hurt myself on superb fried chicken and pork chops, luscious fresh creamed corn, cabbage with side meat, rice and stewed tomatoes, black-eyed peas, excellent turnip greens, rutabegas, very nice mac and cheese, and mashies and good brown gravy. I won’t tell you how much of that I ate, but I really shouldn’t have eaten the best banana pudding I’ve ever had. Nine fifty three was the cost. I left a fiver to the cashier’s surprise. I was sweating so much when I got to the car I steamed up the windshield.
Some ladies fussed when I told them I had been to Nick’s and said that Mom and Pop’s and Barbara Jean’s were both better. Can’t imagine that to be true. But had a nice time and sweated through my shirt every single day. Damn it was hot! Thanks again.
Hey thanks Coastal. Just what I was looking for.
BTW – Norman’s Eat and Run is another roadfood hot dog stand similar to Willie’s (above). They both are on Altamaha Rd.
If you have time I recommend taking a half hour ride down to St. Marys and eat at Langs Marina restuarant – some of the best seafood I’ve ever eaten. The seafood gumbo is unbelievable and the fried shrimp are just as good – there’s always a line so get there early if possible

I posted an exhaustive reply to another’s request. Look on the This forum and find the previous Brunswick Ga. request. This is my hometown and i hope i pointed people in the right direction then.
Thank you Owner and One for your kind replies. I figured to give a general call one more time before I left on Sunday.
Willies Weenie Wagon is a good hot dog lunch roadfood place
Owner of the Badboy
Cargo in downtown Brunswick- pull up the website. Wander over to Saint Simons and go to JMac’s and Halyard’s
I am going there on bidness. I found the GA Pig in the Georgia reviews; anywhere else, Roadfooders? I’m there for a week, and if I eat BBQ every day my delicate insides will rebell. Thanking you.
