This is where it all began, the home of Country’s Barbecue! Opened by Jim Morpeth in 1975, Country’s Barbecue on Mercury Dr. Is and has always been a family restaurant. The country store decor ain’t fancy, just comfortable.

In fact chances are the server taking care of you played on the huge red rocking chair when he or she was a kid. All of our barbecue is cooked open pit over red oak and hickory (the way folks down here like it)! Tuesday nights are all you can eat BBQ chicken night, as it is in all three Columbus locations. Friday and Saturday nights feature live bluegrass music here at the original from 6:30 till about 10pm. So y’all come on your favorite night, bring all your kin and enjoy great barbecue and country cooking’. Country’s Barbecue on Mercury Dr. – the tradition of traditions in Columbus.
