    If you search Highway 61 on the Ontario board, you'll find at least a dozen different threads that are either dedicated to Highway 61 or mention it. Much has been said. Read all of it then make the decision whether to go or not based on what your gut tells you.

      Me and the kids loves this place, great pulled pork, large portions. They often run out of stuff which should be on the combo meals so they often substitute however.

          Oh, Squeakycheese, why? Why did you go? I can't help but think we should have done more to draw your attention to the near unanimous feeling on this board about Highway 61. It's bloody awful. Now you know.

            Squeaky use the search option, there's tons of gripe about this place on here.

              Well we wanted to give them a try, support local business etc, but the only good thing is we were in and out for $50, and got something in our stomachs, including two glasses of wine!

          We went several weeks ago and while we didn't hate it, we wouldn't return. Some parts were not very good (really dry corn bread) and others were OK (we didn't mind the beef ribs). The collards weren't very good. I'm trying to recall what else we ordered...
