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

I had the pork sandwich my husband had the brisket. Very good. We got the ribs to go for dinner. We'll definitely be back.

We used to ALWAYS to to Fat Buddy's here in Franklin, NC - but once we discovered Cash's Buddys became a thing of the past. Buddy's is good but there is something very special about Cash's. If it is too cool you can eat inside the little tented area where in winter they even have heaters running. The barbecue is... More

I had the ribs and they did pull right off the bone and the rub was excellent? My wife had the brisket and said it was awesome and very tender! We highly recommend this place to anyone that can be in the area and wants some of the best BBQ you will ever have!

Really good service, don't judge by how small it is. They do a limited BBQ menu very well & it seems to be a local favorite. They are also super nice!

Stopped here the other day and they had just closed but they happily reopened for me and I'm soooo glad they did. Absolutely wonderful pulled pork sandwiches, get 'em with the slaw on. The sauce is so flavorful it adds to the smoky taste of the pig. Baked beans are nice and peppery-sweet and the potato salad is sublime. I... More

One of the best BBQ in town or area. We don't even mind that they don't accept credit cards. It's well worth for us to run to cash machine just to get their BBQ sandwiched.

I love patronizing local, independent businesses but the folks in Franklin, NC and Clayton, NC are making it hard for me. This business does not accept credit cards as well as many others I ran into this weekend in these towns. These towns would learn something from Gatlinburg, Maggie Valley, and Helen where they cater to tourist. It's just amazing... More
