I hope that this is not what North Carolina should be, because it was surely lacking. The chicken seemed to be simply baked and then had sauce thrown on it, There pork was tasteless and the sides were worse. I was extremely disappointed.

The price was great considering how much meat they give you on your sandwich. They have great sauces. The potato salad was the bomb, just like grandma fixed. The service was quick and friendly. No complaints just full happy bellies.

The BBQ is very good. I ordered vegetables and slaw with my BBQ plate, everything was delicious. The plate comes with a lot of food for the money. The food was good enough that I took home leftovers for later.

The BBQ was good, not great. The place is a bit run down and it was $23 for two small plates. Better value & better food can be found elsewhere. Will NOT return on our next visit.

We took our meal to go for a picnic at Deep Creek. The barbeque was good and so were the sides(slaw, baked beans, potato salad and fries). My son also ordered some ribs that he said were very good.

We stopped in for lunch after a ride on the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. After ordering at the counter, we found a table. The food took a little while to come out, but we were happy with the results. The BBQ is solid, the slaw...More
