Friendly Staff and Good BBQ.

Fun tasty BBQ place with its own parking. Given its location right next to down town, where parking can be a pain, this is a tasty convenient place to eat where you don't have to fight for parking. The atmosphere is nice, the food is good, the prices are fair and affordable, and the staff is... read more

Stopped in after a long weekend hike and I was hungry for some pulled pork. I had the sandwich with traditional and mustard sauce. Delicious and plentiful. The bun was grilled which was great (didn't get soggy). My two sides were perfect compliments - simple Cole slaw and a wonderful corn souffle. Should have stopped after scraping my plate clean.......

Very good bbq. Love the meat, so tender! We always stop when we are in the area. Love it. We had the bbq plate with 2 sides. The brunswick stew is awesome.

So how good are those "burnt ends" so many reviewers mention? Good enough that if your schedule is flexible you should arrange to be in town on Friday, the only day they're served. I occasionally help out with a world champion bbq competition team, and we'd be proud to serve these burnt ends. Forget the sauce. Forget the bread. Just... More

We stopped in here on an impulse and were very glad we did. The location, a converted gas station is fun and the food is very good. What makes the place a five in my mind is the staff. Friendly is the best word to describe them. As a point of comparison the food was every bit as good as... More

We have a lot of BBQ places in North Georgia. This is one of my favorites. I will drive past several good places if I really want a treat.

My wife and I were visiting Dahlonega and decided to have BBQ for lunch. We both love BBQ so it just seemed right. It was very good. The atmosphere was good and the restaurant was clean. The food arrived rather quickly. We both ordered sweet tea but it left a lot to be desired. All and all it was a... More

We stopped in for dinner. The service was great. Pulled pork was very good. The brisket was tasty and tender. The smoked sausage was excellent. My wife and daughter also enjoyed their meals.

We ate here on a Saturday for lunch. The barbeque was above average but not knock your socks off. I really liked the sauces. It's right off the Square so very convenient. If you get a hankering for barbeque while in Dahlonega this is the place!

This place is all around amazing. The BBQ & sides can't be beat. Their corn casserole is out of this world along with their baked beans & cole slaw. You can't beat their BBQ and their sauces are superb. The service is pretty amazing which truly completes the experience. I don't understand why someone would be in Dahlonega & go... More
