“The bombast BBQ in town! Yes, better than Roger's! Wholly Smokin' will make you say "Wholly SH*T!" The food is great, the service is quick, and the bartenders and drinks are top notch! The courtyard behind it gets LIVE when there's live music! If you got one thing, get their Chicken Pesto Wrap with loaded mashed potato! ”

“Long ago, in a small hick town named Florence, there once was 4 movie theaters...then...SWAMP FOX came and destroyed them all! All except THE JULIA! How did they survive? Great prices, clean place, and excellent service! You can spend $20 and get a brand new movie, pop corn, and drinks for TWO PEOPLE! You can't do that anywhere else in Florence! ”
