This restaurant has the most tender, fabulous pulled pork ever! What a great meal! The cole slaw is perfect-light and crisp and the service is quick. It was very full the evening we were there and the tables were crowded. It did not diminish the BBQ! We went before a concert so the crowd was to be expected. It is... More

Own a house nearby, and when we come up for vacation this is one of our regular stops of all the barbecue places in the area. Great food and very friendly staff proud of it. Only drawback - if it's raining and you can't sit outside, seating is tight.

Service was great, and the food was good. We had pulled pork sandwiches. They were smaller than expected but sufficient. Inside was a little stuffy so we ate on side porch. It was rather toasty too since ac near it, but the lake view was great. Glad to see good reviews, that's what brought us here. It's nice to find... More

The proprietors where very friendly and helpful and explained the menu. I ordered a piglett plate and my wife ordered a chopped pork plate. The pork was very tasty, moist and tender. The piglett is like a slider, a mini pork sandwich. There are two pigletts on a plate. The barbecue beans were some on the best I have had,... More

Went looking for great pulled pork and only found good chopped pork. They are not the same. Too many flies/gnats for us on this day. OK place but will look elsewhere next time.

You order at the counter and then they serve you. The owner explained the menu and was very helpful about what to order. We had the pork barbecue sandwich plate that comes with two sides. The sandwich was really big and the sides were generous too. I think next time I will get "the piglet" sandwich! (not so big). The... More

Cute little place with a view of Lake Chatuge from the side deck. BBQ is moist, you get to add your own sauces at the table. Coleslaw is good, as are the beans. I had the pork and it was delicious. Very kind and courteous service. We will return!

Real smoked BBQ, chapped when you order. Great side dishes as well. By far the best BBQ for miles around. Located in an old former gas station, tables both inside and out. Drive through window. Give it a try.
