The place isn't fancy, but the food is fabulous. When we visit we always make a point 2 dine here twice. The bbq and brisket are the best I have ever eaten. The portions are huge, and prices reasonable.

I order take-out regularly. This place is about 4 miles away from home so we've been ordering from them frequently. We usually get a whole fried chicken, brunswick stew and a piece of chess pie. They have the best fried chicken around! I also like the fried okra.

This was simply the best BBQ I have ever had. I went two days in a row. If you like Ribs or pulled pork, smoked on the premiss then you must eat here.

Saw the sign and decided to try it - was happy I did. Service was okay = efficient. I ordered the brisket and was surprised on how quickly it was served. It came with a bbq sauce on it (I usually pass on bbq sauces) which was actually nice - not sweet nor vinegary but had a nice spicy flavor.... More

We've been dining in at High Cotton over several years and it is consistently our favorite barbeque...the real deal. No liquid smoke here..nothing but great flavor from ribs, pork plate, moist and tender,smoked cabbage, chicken and dumplings and collard greens. Great staff, makes you feel welcomed.. nothing but southern hospitality here! My husband smokes his own meats at home..so we... More

Smoked pork and chicken were excellent, as was the smoked cabbage (seasonal). Hush puppies were also really good. They have their own barbeque sauce brand that's also good. Take it from a home smoker -- these guys know what they're doing!

We tried this BBQ Restaurant based on reviews. My husband and I only found this BBQ to be average. We did not like the BBQ sauce at all. My collard greens were good; but, way to much fat. My husband was very unimpressed with the food. About the service, that was horrible. A young girl was the waitress and she... More

Loved the BBQ here. Got a combo plate piled high and it was enough to take lots of leftovers home (and at such a little price!) I personally liked the hush puppies here quite a bit. And LOVED the baked beans! Service was fast and efficient ... we had to wait a little bit before our order was taken, but... More
