Reasonably priced, excellent service (our server and the manager made us feel very welcome), down to earth cozy atmosphere, and delicious BBQ! We had the ribs and pulled pork, both were delicious. Highly recommended!

Very friendly, comfy place to grab a bite. Food was good enough but nothing to rave about. The mac n' cheese and cole slaw were better than the BBQ to me. We tried 2 of the 3 kinds of pork BBQ and also the smoked sausage and beef BBQ. I couldn't eat the smoked sausage and the BBQ wasn't as... More

We have wanted to try this barbecue on our many trips to Massanutten, based on the reviews and finally made it. The restaurant was cozy and waitress was super friendly. We got the ribs and sweet barbecue platters. Yum. Had ice cream for dessert. Don't miss stopping by for some great food.

This is a small restaurant that has barbecue for really good prices. I liked the fried pickles since it is dill spears that are dipped, I think, in a hush puppy batter. The sides did not seem quite as good as years before. The barbecue sandwich was good. The service there was also good.

Very friendly service and very reasonably priced. Food was average at best. Tasted like canned green beans and canned baked beans. Smoke flavor was marginal at best. Pulled pork was oversauced. Ribs were the best part of the meal and my homemade ribs are WAY better.

We were down from Philadelphia and stopped by to have lunch with friends. We were thrilled with the outstanding and polite service and the quality of the food. I personally enjoyed the pulled pork over the beef, but that's like choosing between a Porsche and a Ferrari: either way, it's a great choice! The hush puppies were heavenly and the... More

We frequent this area once or twice a year. We make sure, we eat dinner, at Log Cabin Barbeque. Whenever, we send friends here, we highly recommend Log Cabin Barbeque. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is warming, portion size is great and the service is always impeccable. We had Tristen last night and he took good care of us.... More

My husband and I stopped by for late lunch. The restaurant is pretty small but we snagged the last available table. Like other reviews...styrofoam plates...a simple, whole in the wall restaurant. Friendly service. Our BBQ was delicious...we had the pork and a half slab of ribs. The ribs were awesome and fell of the bone. We stuck with baked beans... More

Excellent BBQ Ribs & Pulled Pork. The best potatoe salad & coleslaw ever! The Pulled Pork Carolina Style is very good too! I haven't tried the chicken.
