We just discovered Scott's although they've been around awhile. The pulled pork is flavorful and abundant. They're popular so they run out of things occasionally. They ran out of collard greens on the day we were there, but we were able to snag the last of the peach cobbler. Their bbq is great, but I'd go back just for the... More

Reasonably priced BBQ. Nothing fancy but clean and reliable BBQ. What is not reliable is the peach cobbler. Sometimes they have it, most often they are out of the cobbler and sometimes it's just ok.

Went for the first time after reading many positive reviews. The ribs were really good, very tender with great flavor. The staff was efficient, but the real friendliness and warmth came from Scott himself. He was very helpful and really made sure everything was just right (and it was). Location is easy to find and the restaurant was exceptionally clean.... More

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! Try both the vinegarette and the Scott's bbq sauce! You will not regret it! They always have amazing and fast customer service! My favorite place to eat in... More

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.
