Best in Town

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.

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

Meat was not flavorful, it was way too smokey and dry. Choice of sauces, oh yes, there was none. Bun was dried out and even hard on one side. The meat may be good on a salad with lots of dressing.Smoke flavor is not BarBQue.The meat should taste good without any sauce.

Usually use the take out service. Scott's BBQ sauce was a huge hit at our tailgate this year! Staff always offers to help me take the food out to my car.

Food was cold and overpriced. Selections of meat and sides are very few. Cartersville needs a GOOD barbecue restaurant.

Granted, we're spoiled when it comes to barbecue. This was only average. Sides were ok. Brunswick stew was new to us, and it's always nice to try something new.
