    Appling County Reviews

    I love living in a smalltown. Baxley has the sweetest people. We have some of the best BBQ and pecan pies. Every March, we have a county wide yard sale called Peaches to Beaches. We recently just got a Zaxbys about two years ago. Our Dairy Queen has the BEST chicken strip baskets and gravy! Hunter Johnson is the place to go for long-lasting paint. The Walmart is just big enough, and the greeters will put a smile on your face. Fridays nights are spent in the stands watching the Appling County Pirates.
