The best bbq ever! I am usually very picky and always have to examine food to make sure there's no fat but at Scott's I NEVER have to! Everything is absolutely perfect!

This is by far the best BBQ in the area. The portions are generous and the sauce is superb! The service is great too. They kept checking to see if we needed anything else. I love sitting on the patio when the weather permits. You can't go wrong with Scott's!

It's about a half hour jaunt to get to Scott's from where we live, so we don't make it up there often. When we are in Cartersville, it's high on our list of places to eat though. The décor won't do much for anybody - it's cinder blocks, basic tables, and cafeteria chairs, but oh my.... the décor isn't what... More

I usually have a hard time going to BBQ joints as a vegetarian but this place works for me. They have great sides and I can make a great meal out of that. I hear the BBQ is killer. I do like the owner a lot and the place has a super authentic feel...

This is really the best BBQ in town, maybe the state. I eat lunch here maybe once a week, always very good. I usually get the pork sandwich special and either use the North Carolina sauce ( spicy vinager base) or the South Carolina sauce which is mustard base, both delicious.

This is the best barbecue restaurant in Cartersville. The food is just like you would have at home and the service is great too. Mr. Scott is there everyday greeting customers. if anythis is the least bit wrong just tell him and he makes it right. The Burnt Ends on Friday are great. Only problem is if you want them... More

This is my go to place for BBQ. I pass at least four other bbq restaurants just to satisfy my craving here. I usually get the pork sandwich the meat is tender, moist and flavorful. The meat is not pre-sauced which I like. Scott's offers several sauces my favorite is the North Carolina Style which is vinegar based . I... More

When in Cartersville, GA be sure to stop by Scott's Walk-up Bar-B-Q restaurant. All of the meat is good, but my favorites are the pulled pork and ribs. On Fridays beef brisket is available, which sells out quick. You can, however, order ahead for them to set aside a portion. The menu is short and not overwhelming, which makes it... More

I've eaten at Scott's Walk Up BBQ many times since it opened. The last visit was yesterday. I ordered a chopped pork plate, cole slaw, and their Brunswick stew (which got a First Place Trophy at a BBQ Contest). What a great meal. Scott has two main BBQ sauces. The Georgia style which we're all used to, which is excellent,... More

The food and atmosphere is great. If you eat there on Friday they sell an excellent beef brisket. Award winning BBQ!
