I grew up shopping and working in downtown Columbus, and to this day it’s still one of my favorite areas of Columbus-eclectic and full of history. When the old Greyhound bus station-built in the 30’s -became available, Country’s couldn’t resist. We bought the property in 1988 and restored it as a shiny, stainless steel barbecue diner.
It’s like walking back in time! The decor and music are sure to bring back memories-even if you’re not old enough to have ‘em! You can sit at the milkshake bar and listen to FREE tunes on the jukebox (maybe look for some James Brown-he passed through the original bus station while on tour) or let the kids sit at the wheel and “drive” the 1930-something Greyhound bus while you and the family enjoy the daily Bus Driver’s Special. The mural near the bar features three of the original servers at the bus station. All of the great barbecue is cooked open pit over oak and hickory (the way folks down here like it) and the veggies are cooked the way Southerners always have. Country’s on Broad features our only drive thru window and downtown delivery during lunch.
