My wife and I had lunch here during our first visit to Dahlonega. The waiter suggested the burnt-end beef brisket and I'm glad he did. My wife had pulled pork. We loved the BBQ sauce, the corn casserole, baked beans, mac and cheese.

Very good barbeque, the sides were delicious. After reading reviews about the corn casserole I had to give it a try, it was excellent, as was the mac and cheese. Service was quick and accurate, will definitely return.

The big green egg was smoking out front so the aroma drew us over to Smoking Gold for lunch. We sat outside but you can sit inside with the AC if you need it. I had the ribs and they were very good and meaty...More

I have had everything here it's all good . I love the corn casserole maybe order 2 servings if you eat a lot. We stop by here once a week for dinner . The Barbeque here is the best so far in north Georgia
