We ordered this for pick up for NYE and got brisket, ribs, pulled pork, and wings with mac & cheese and baked beans as sides. The baked beans and Mac & cheese were tasty but I think they wasn't a lot of food for the price ($9/lb which was a medium sized container). Overall, food was great and we'd go... More

food served in paper cups and styrofoam and food the served the same!!! Low overhead costs, not that clean and service is uncomplimentary and most act like they hate their jobs. Food not that great to warrant another visit. I won't be back, yucky place!

As you probably know, not tons of restaurants in town. I went for lunch as I wanted to try it out. I had the meat plate, $8.95. I thought that was a little expensive since it doesn't come with a side (cornbread doesn't count as side to me). I had chicken, not very smokey flavor. However, ask for ghost pepper... More

Archie's is a staple when we visit Deep Creek. Located just a few minutes up the road from Wisp Ski Resort, Archie's is a truly authentic BBQ place. Their two handed sandwiches are enough to share (although you won't want to) and their menu is simple. A lot of meat and some homemade sides. No fries though - which is... More

BBQ was a disappointment. Briskets were dry and cold and felt that they were prepared well ahead of time.

I was at Wisp with a few friends in January and we stopped here and got some carry out. They offer a wide variety of pulled bbq meats and sides and sandwiches. Everyone loved what they ordered. I had the pulled turkey wrap, it was incredibly good and hearty. The portions are pretty big so its great when you have... More
