Peters BBQ in Ellinger is amazing. I eat there every time a drive through. I think it is my favorite BBQ right now, it reminds me a little of Georgia BBQ with the really good sauce and fantastic sides.

I have eaten a lot at Peter's BBQ in Ellinger. The buffet at noon was really good when I ate there for the money. Real home cooked food on it every time that was always good. The cook made it even better they had back then. Schobel's in Columbus for the lunch buffet was pretty good also, just don't order off the menu, it might take a while. Anything off the menu was good just took a while to get it at lunch. Get there early cause it will be packed. Deserts in both places were always great and all you can eat. Schobel's was a bit more expensive than Peter's.
