Sprayberry's Barbecue Restaurant Review

: Founded in 1926, Sprayberry’s continues to keep the faith with standout fried pies, made the right way with dried fruit cooked for hours until sugar and fruit meld into sweetness. But the last time we had a pulled pork sandwich, the small morsel was as dry and tasteless as any we’ve ever experienced. Baby-back ribs, after being cooked, are held over steam, leaving the under-seasoned meat dry and flabby in texture. And the hapless boneless barbecued chicken breast is the Gobi desert on a plate. Slaw is crispy and vinegar-dressed for a special tang, and is one of the best versions of this style around. Mac ‘n’ cheese and Brunswick stew are just fair. Also located at 229 Jackson St. at U.S. 29, Newnan, 770-253-4421.
