Friendly staff. Awesome food. The meat was smokey and tender. Baked beans and sweet potato fries were the perfect sides. I recommend this place if you are in the mountains and want to fill your belly.

The name says barbeque but that's not all you'll find that is fabulous. This is a true local's restuarant with amazing food and great character. The barbeque is authentic -ribs, brisket,smoked chicken, and pulled pork -sauces with a tangy bite. Everything on the menu is...More
