Great brisket and friendly staff. Had generous portions. We were there at lunch and the place was busy but we were seated quickly and got our food quick also. We will be back.

Our favorite BBQ place in Waynesville. Courteous staff, fast service & great food! Take-out service is super-speedy even without ordering in advance. Local beers available too. Great outdoor patio for warm weather.

Simple place, great service and food. I had the ribs and they were great. My wife had the brisket and it was beyond any I have ever had. Wish we could eat here all the time, but not close to home.
