Best pork I have ever had

First, you need to order ahead. This place is always packed and it took almost a half hour to get my take out order without calling ahead. That being said, the food is wonderful. We had the pulled pork dinners Bd they we're delicious ! Melt in your mouth and a plus for having fried green tomatoes !!

Great food prepared by a guy who cares about quality. Best barbecue in the region. Give them a shot if you are in the area!

Beef brisket is to die for!!!!!!! The service is excellent and the decour is fun. All the food is cooked fresh daily so you may not want to get there at the end of the day, because they might be sold out of your dream BBQ! Don't fret over it too much because EVERY THING is dreamy!

Stopped by Pop's Barbecue on the way home from Cave Run Lake today. I remember the last time I ate there thinking, "boy, those are some outrageous prices for that little amount of food." Well...I fell for it again because I was hungry and no other restaurants around. True to form, the food was OK but the price was astronomical... More

There isn't much of a selection in the area surrounding the beautiful hills and hollers of Morgan County. So - Sunday evening after spending the days wandering through the hills we headed over to the only place to go - Pop's. Just too tired to go any further. I ordered the ribs, salad, and baked potato. The prices were just... More

Call ahead if u want something specific. We showed up at opening on Sunday and they didn't have bbq ribs or coleslaw. Very disappointed. No point in getting there early. Don't care how good the substitute food was. U should have bbq at your bbq restaurant.

Honestly, this restaurant has a monopoly going. There really is not a another place to eat for miles around. We got lucky and in passing this place a second time while going through the Daniel Boone National forest we stopped for dinner The ribs fell off the bone and that happens with any me if you cook it long enough....

Based on other reviews, we looked forward to eating here on a late Sunday afternoon around 5:30 PM and were told they were out of pulled pork. Now, how can a BBQ joint run out of one of the most popular items before the dinner hour? Sure, demand could have been high that weekend, but come on, put more in... More

Good alternative to the usual fast food fare and just a few miles south of I64. Based on other reviews decided to give this place a shot. Early Friday afternoon so it wasn't too busy. Plenty of parking for the RV. We were seated and orders were promptly taken. I had the pulled pork BBQ sandwich with shoestring fries. DH... More
