The pulled pork and BBQ ribs were amazing. I highly recommend this place over anything downtown Gatlainburg. I want more now that I'm writing about it. My favorite side was the potato salad. The beans were good too.

The briskett and pork were VERY good, while chicken was mediocre, and ribs were actually quite bad. If the ribs and chicken were better I would have given at least 4 STARS. Maybe they were having a bad day on the ribs...I hope.

It's been 5 years since our last visit to this restaurant, unfortunately, but the food is just as great as our last visit. The pulled pork was great and for something a bit different, went with the rib sandwich. Very filling and flavorful. A great choice of sides available and large portions. This is a must for us every time... More

After a long day of hiking, my husband & I were ready for a delicious and hearty meal. That's exactly what we got!!!! Food was excellent. Atmosphere was casual and friendly. As soon as we pulled into the parking lot, we could smell the meat in the smoker. Delicious! Prices were reasonable.

Pork sandwich was good. Slaw was full or pepper and potato salad was old. Employees were not very happy. They did not have several items on the menu and were out of coke and Dr pepper. Makes for a stressful work environment. Employees were definitely stressed. Their attitude did change a little when I left a tip anyway. Not their... More

I decided to get sides this time as I did not on our visit a couple years ago. Mac and Cheese and Beans were very good! The beans had a sweet smoky flavor and were unique to... More
