While visiting Boone, we happened upon this barbecue restaurant- just recently opened. Tried the hushpuppy appetizer special- and we both agreed these were the best we have ever had! Served piping hot and crispy with honey butter- yum! I'd go back just for these! The smoked chicken was also excellent! Tender, juicy and cooked perfectly! I see other reviews had... More

This is a new business set inside a previous Barbecue restaurant, but completely redone, and rethought!! The Barbecue is SO tasty, it doesn't even need sauce, but there are several homemade ones to try if you wish! I love the chicken, and its the best salad bar in town, including delicious homemade chicken Salad, potato salad, and homemade dressings!! Great... More

As a Boone local, I love Boone's local, hole in the wall restaurants. McKethan Brothers barbecue is great and for a pretty fair price. They have a great salad bar, great barbecue and BBQ sauces (mild, sweet and spicy). The service was mediocre at best, but they are new, so hopefully it will improve. Boone has been in need of...

We had a table of 6 and got there before noon on a Sunday. Took a long time to get food to the table and it was cold when it got there. Potato salad and green beans not completely cooked. BBQ had no real BBQ flavor--sauces were ok but not great. Everyone in the party had lots of food left... More

Why out with for others. Service was very attentive. I got the pulled pork meal-it was so large I could have split it. The plate was only $10.00 and it came with two sides and a corn bread muffin. The Mac and cheese was great. I am not a huge fan of corn bread but this muffin was good -... More

This is a new restaurant in Boone (took over another barbecue restaurant) and if my experience here is any indication, not only are they going to be around for a long, long time, it's also going to be increasingly difficult to get in without a wait.
