The main sign now reads Papa T's BBQ. I'm guessing the ownership has changed recently. My wife and I were on vacation in the Lake Lure, NC area and stopped here for lunch. We were looking for good BBQ and were sorely disappointed. I refer to this as tourist BBQ, because it is for people who really don't know what... More

The BBQ sandwich was both tasty large. Prices were reasonable and service prompt and friendly. Not much on atmosphere, but it is across the road from the beach at Lake Lure.

We have been to this restaurant twice and have had a great breakfast both times. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is home town comfort. We will go here again next year.

This place was terrific! The staff couldn't be nicer and the bbq was awesome. I'm a western style fan so it fit me perfect. I'll hit this place every time I'm back ..................................
