  3. Petty’s BBQ: This classic location off of Highway 12 W is known for being an authentic, old-time Southern BBQ joint with fun and filling plates such as the ‘Wrangler Strangler’, a dish that boasts two different types of their home made BBQ!  A typical meal at Petty’s runs under $10.
  4. Bop’s Frozen Custard: This should be the first (and last) stop you make when you get to town! Located off of Highway 12, Bop’s is sure to cure a case of sweet tooth. Treat yo’self after acing exams with their sweet eats!
