HEAVEN IN YOUR MOUTH !!!

If you're anywhere near Franklin, NC; and like pulled pork BBQ then do yourself a favor and stop by Cash's BBQ. You'll be glad you did. Be sure to check their hours as they are only open for lunch Monday-Saturday. I grew up on pulled pork BBQ and it just doesn't get any better than this.

Since I'm a BBQ freak, I like to try other's cooking, for a comparison and maybe some tips. Read about this place on Tripadvisor, so gave it a shot. Glad we did. The pulled pork was very tender and flavorful. It was smoked, not boiled then smoked as some restaurants do. I talked with the owners and they were very... More

This is a great place to eat! Located just off 441 S, don't let the size of the place fool you. There is usually a line and that's because the food is so good.

If you love barbque, want fantastic food, reasonable tab and a beautiful place to eat it, go here. No frills, picnic/ cafe style outside or screen porch seating. You'll be glad you stopped.

A friend recommended this BBq restaurant to me, I found their pork was bland and I didn't care for the sides or Sauces either. I think I have been spoiled by The Wicked Pig in Clayton. Sorry.

Tucked in right next to Whistle Stop Antique Mall. Try the brisket sandwich or pork. Either one is real good.

When you think of Barbecue you think of a rustic restaurant. Cash's smokehouse is that but mixed with a little road side stand. Very friendly staff will help you if you not sure about barbecue. They smoke there own ribs, pulled pork, brisket. The taste is definitely true BBQ . My only complaint is portion size. They could add a... More

There may be better places around, but you won't find one that's cleaner than Cash's. That is very important to me. Sometimes you go up to a BBQ place and there's grease hanging off the roof from the turn of the century…not here. The pulled pork was delicious, if not a bit luke warm. The sauces were good and vinegary…just... More
