Average Restaurant

This place is average and convenient. It is not the type of BBQ you would want to run back to. Had the ribs and they were definitely not fall off the bone. I found them tough, chewy and not hot temperature wise.

Very rustic restaraunt with a good atmosphere. Order at the counter, and they will bring it right out. I had pulled pork, beans, and fried corn. I am a big fan of eastern NC BBQ, so the pulled pork is different than what I am accustomed to. That being said, the meat was well cooked, and I enjoyed the variety... More

We had ordered to go from BOTC a couple of times and the food was good each time. We decided to go in and eat...the restaurant is rustic with seating on a porch and some of the tables are overlooking a creek. There is a gift shop with a glass blowing artists work as well as some other gift items.... More

Stopped by Butts on the Creek in Maggie Valley, NC, for lunch on the way through North Carolina. Had a delicious very good BBQ sandwich with French fries and sweet iced-tea. A very rustic and popular restaurant in the area and the place was packed. Will head back there again on our next trip up to Maggie Valley.
