Delicious perfectly cooked pork!

The food here was so good!! The pork was probably the best I've ever had and trust me I'm a native Georgian and had lots of barbecue in my 57 years!! The side dishes were good as well. The staff were very nice and polite and that was very refreshing as I have been in so many establishments lately... read more

Very good bbq. Very small but adequate. Not open on Mondays and Tuesdays. Needs more dining area. Owners were nice, keep up the great food.!!

We went here today for lunch and it was really good. The staff was incredibly personable and helpful. It has outside seating looking out to the lake. Perfect little roadside BBQ joint- it was just what we were looking for.

I had the bbq pork sandwich. It was plentiful, moist, flavorful. The coleslaw was not loaded down with mayo. Sweet flavor. The staff were friendly, pleasant & efficient. I used the North Carolina bbq sauce which was very good. Definitely one of the best BBQ in the area. It's worth the stop. My traveling companions also enjoyed it.

One of the top five barbecue I have had between NY, NC and GA. They had a nice assortment of site sauces. Ribs fell off bone and chick was moist as is expected. May be unassuming, but worth the stop! Very accommodating staff.

This is not a place for atmosphere but if you want great BBQ and all the fixin's this is the place. I have had BBQ in many restaurants across the south including some famous joints, but this is the best!

It has been awhile since my previous visit and I wanted to check things out for lunch. Once again the Q was good and I had the pork and chicken combo plate. Sides were good also. When a Q joint serves their smoked meat without sauce you know they are proud of what they put on the table. Keep up... More

Good ribs... Sides a bit on the small side although the fried corn on the cob was just an explosion of sweetness, the best part of the meal. Sorry guys but not the best. We will stick with big jims in blairsville for ribs. High points for friendly service tho..
