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 building and outdoor seating was nice looking. It was a good day, so nice to sit at the picnic tables on the porch, across the street from the lake. The bbq was just ok. It was a rather small portion of pork bbq for around $10. The hush puppies were a bit overdone and tough. We have had better... More

We were big fans of the Cajun Pig BBQ Restaurant in Chimney Rock, that unfortunately burned down several years ago. On a recent trip to Lake Lure, I was glad to see the owner has opened a new BBQ restaurant in Lake Lure. We tried it out for lunch and were glad we did. Great food, great service, great location...

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 ..................................

So, we rolled up on Chimney Rock about 10am on the Sunday before Labor day. Every restaurant was closed. We were famished. We tried entering a restaurant right outside Chimney Rock State Park and the lady said their kitchen was switching over to lunch and she refused to seat us. Great! So, we kept driving towards Lake Lure and there... More
