Good and easy!

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... read 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!

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.

Stopped into this little barbeque joint on a whim. Had the ribs, collard greens and coleslaw. The ribs were cooked perfect with a little pull and the sauce was not to heavy. You could taste the smoke flavor. Collard greens were like grandma use to make, not over powered by spices and the slaw was delicious. Will definitely be back.

I really enjoy the BBQ here at Scott's, the Brisket is the best. The only down fall is that they only serve it on Fridays.

Scott's walk up sets the standard for barbecue in Cartersville, GA. I love the brisket on Fridays. The pork is excellent and the sauces are amazing. When I want barbecue I head to Scott's. Y'all should check it out.
