Stopped in before hitting Bass Pro Shops, very nice folks, very local friendly, old south bbq, the name says it all. Great tea, prices are reasonable and a great alternative to a chain restaurant

Stopping for the family pack is always easy and delicious. We have meals for dinner and lunch the next day. I don't know how many years we've gone to Old Smokey but it's been at least 15 and I still think they are up there with the best.

Their pulled pork bbq taste like it has been re-heated. The chicken and ribs were both very dry. I cook in bbq competitions, so I know good bbq, and this was not good bbq. Also, the seating area is very small and cramped. No wait staff. I will not go back.

Was visiting the Barber Motorcycle Museum and stopped in for lunch. It's a small place but very clean and run very efficiently. I had the BBQ ribs and my friends all ordered sandwiches. I also ordered the cole slaw which was very good. Ordered the ribs with the sauce on the side as I like to control the amount of... More

Best Cheese Burger around. I know the Bar B Q is good but we love the burgers along with an order of O rings.

this is the closest BBQ to Barber motorsports park so we stopped here for lunch. They are really authentic! The pork was awesome, the beef was a bit dry. Both were great with bbq sauce that was unlike anything I've had before. Try it!
