It may just be their style, but it was the soggiest BBQ I've ever had! Wasn't bad tasting, but not a whole lot of flavor, nothing to write home about.

Don't let the location fool you! It's a small place located next to a convenience store. But they're food is out of this world. They start early in the morning every day with fresh meat on the smoker! The smell is divine! No matter what you try you can guarantee it will be fantastic. And if you can't wait for... More

Pulled pork so flavorful and juicy it would be great without any sauce. The service is great and personable.

Smoking Gold Barbeque is located near the picturesque town square in Dahlonega, Georgia. People have different tastes when in comes to B-B-Q, but everyone in our party was very impressed with Smoking Gold. Pulled pork, brisket, ribs were all above average quality. The corn casserole, baked beans, and potato salad were all delicious. There is no children's menu, but you... More

Overpriced for plastic utensils and mediocre food. It seems that it is the only bbq in town. We've eaten there twice - first time for lunch and then for dinner. For lunch the portion of beef brisket was large and with no knife (who doesn't supply knives) I had to tear the meat with my teeth and spit out the... More

Great down home cookin'! I have visited the Smoking Gold BBQ many times and it is always great. The Brunswick stew is fantastic, the ribs are great and the pulled pork a treat. A short walk from the town square and a fun surprise in an converted gas station. LUV it!
