The brisket was wonderful. We happened by this place looking for lunch and was not disappointed. Ribs were very good too. I would recommend this place.

The smoked sausage was amazing and... More

My sister and I were going to Gatlinburg and seen a BBQ sign. A you could smell the meat cooking. It's a very busy road side place. I had a brisket sandwich with BBQ beans and coleslaw with three choices of sauce. My sister had pulled pork sandwich and it was good we would recommend this to anyone.

We stopped here after zip-lining nearby & it was absolutely delicious! The pulled pork sandwich was fantastic & the sweet BBQ sauce was the best I've ever eaten. Sides of baked beans & Cole slaw were excellent too. Nice staff & friendly service. We would highly recommend!

While staying in a cabin in Gatlinburg we wanted to enjoy a meal at our cabin. My husband set out to get some to-go food and came back with this BBQ. Im very glad he did! It was very good! The portions weren't the biggest but we were both very full! Stop by if your in the area!

We ate there almost every day either for lunch or dinner. We recommend the brisket, beans, mac and cheese and chili. Nice staff.
