Great place to get your BBQ fix

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a local and we were very happy with our meals there. BBQ is a specialty and we tried quite a few of their meats. All were very good especially when coated with their custom sauces. Their "el scorcho" sauce has some heat but with good flavor... read more

The Knotty has many things going for it, but time after time, I've been amazed but the amount of sh$%y attitude I've gotten from the staff, one waitress in particular. Even just asking for a menu, or asking if you can order, can result in getting treated like dirt. I honestly have no idea why they thing they can get... More

You don't got to the Knotty Pine for the decor--although it has a lot of atmosphere. Go there for incredible home cooking and BBQ at really reasonable prices. There are a lot of good restaurants in the Driggs/Victor area. Knotty Pine is one of the best. I rated it 5 circles, not because it can complete with the best in,... More

Knotty Pines seems like it would be an okay place to work, if it weren't for customers. My wife and I went in on a Sunday afternoon. There was a sign up front telling us to sit at the bar or the dining room. We sat in the dining room. The first man to acknowledge us got us a drink... More

The Knotty is the one place our out of town visitors unanimously ask us to take them for that one memorable dinner out while here in Teton Valley. I love that because it gives me an excuse to try something else on the menu, and I've never been disappointed. Even an old Southern boy like me, who has made trips... More

from the outside, the knotty pine looks like it has a lot of character. we were pleassantly surprised to find that the food was way better than the rustic log cabin look suggested. lots of great options anywhere from 6 to 25 dollars and some very tasty specials. my wife had a bison burger which was deliciousand the pasta special...

Maybe I'm just a city boy who lives too fast, but I don't understand what people find so great about this place. I'm not saying it's bad, but I am saying it's simply average. I tried BBQ: the food was warm (not hot) and wasn't anything special. I've had better BBQ at fast food places in The South. The other... More

We come up to the Knotty Pine on a regular basis from about 75 miles away. LOVE IT! The service is always friendly and efficient and the food is always hot and delicious, like nothing you can get in my town. There is something for everyone on the menu, and not only do they know how to smoke meat wonderfully,... More

We were charmed by Victor and it's atmosphere and food and loved trying each restaurant in turn. Midway through our stay, we chose the Knotty Pine for lunch. I hate to say it, but it was our only unpleasant dining experience. Our waitress seemed mildly annoyed by our simple requests (extra napkins, side of ranch) and though the food was... More
