This is simply a GREAT hometown BBQ restaurant. The decor is amusing, service friendly, prices fair and food absolutely delicious. It's right next to the wonderful old movie theater on the square in Winchester. Patronize both!

Went here during a basketball tournament due to the reviews on TA! It was excellent. The food, service, and atmosphere were all top drawer. The portions are large. This is definitely a must stop when in Winchester. I can't wait to go back!

Gotta give a shout out to the fantastic dinner my family enjoyed at John T's BBQ on the square in Winchester, TN. Some of the best dry-rub baby back ribs this Southern boy has ever eaten. Good sauce and sides but the highlight was the fall-off-the-bone ribs man!!! The restaurant needs to get added to Trip Advisor so more people know about it...on second thought, maybe I 'll keep it to myself.
