I loved the BBQ and baked beans. Potato salad was tasteless. Restaurant was clean and staff were excellent!

great bbq sandwich. Beef was great. Nice place to visit and staff was exceptional. Great smell from the outside that invites you into the establishment. Check times because a couple of days they close early

Food and service was excellent! Didn't care to much for potato salad. Didn't really have a taste. But everything else was great!

Our visit to Dahlonega in it's entirety was surprising and excellent, but the highlight was dinner at Smokin' Gold BBQ. The meats were expertly smoked, slow, juicy and flavorful. The sides that I tried, including the beans and slaw were delicious, excellent accompaniments for the fantastic dinner. For dessert we had the banana pudding - simply perfect. We spoke with... More

I like barbeque, but usually I don't pay much attention to it, it's all okay. So when I heard that Smoking Gold was really good, I thought, yeah, fine, I'll try it. Well, it really is very good! The sides are good, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Okay, I am a BBQ snob and I admit it. We try BBQ places all over the place, and do it often. This place has a great downtown location, is nice if you are visiting and walking the area, and just need a BBQ fix. Staff was very nice and attentive. It has okay BBQ, and okay sides. They do... More

With the 2 delicious sides of colslaw and potato salad I was more than satisfied with 1/2 rack. The rack was a bit more fatty then I like, but meaty, moist tender... More

The barbecue and selections of sauces were good. The corn casserole, Brunswick stew and beans were very good. Nice, clean place with great service. Perfect for a beautiful day in north Georgia!!

Stopped in for a mid day lunch. I had Brisket and pulled pork and the wife a brisket sandwich. Both of us enjoyed the our meals. Fast friendly service and a good size place.

This is a great little place to have a relaxed lunch. The BBQ is terrific and the best part for me is they have gluten free buns. Lots of restaurants say they have gluten free menu then they say "order it without a bun".....sad.
