RE: Fuddruckers vs Zeb's?
wallhd and all y'all,
This probably isn't what anyone was thinking of, but Zeb's BBQ is on U. S. 29 between Danielsville and Royston, Georgia. An anomaly in this part of the state: their pork is always served dry; you spice it yourself. Their hotter sauce is a vinegar-pepper configuration without sweetness that is only remotely like the similar sauce in eastern North Carolina because it is void of tomatoes.
Zeb's is about 25 miles from Athens and is worth the drive, especially in the event that gasoline goes down to a sensible price.
Unburgeredly, Ort. Carlton in Lovely Athens, Georgia.
P. S. Zeb's was started in the 1930's by Zeb Dean and is carried on by his daughter, son-in-law, grandkids, and other progeny. So there really was a Zeb; I even met him a few times in past years. I doubt if you go to Zeb's Burgerria and ask if Zeb is there you'll get any sort of positive response.
