Much nicer on inside than appears from road

Friendly staff, clean, cute decor & quality food. I had the pulled pork sandwich. The bun was grilled and there was no fat on the pork. They did not have a chopped meat sandwich, which I personally prefer. The sweet potato was done perfectly & the brown sugar-cinnamon sauce was spectacular. My... read more

This place has great food. I also think they have the best ribs I have ever eaten. We try to go there at least 2 to 3 times a year. It takes us 9 hrs. We go on our way to the NOC in North Carolina.

On the way home to bryson city from an out of town trip, we thought we'd get an order to go. For starters, the total was $32!! Thats the price of a so called full slab of ribs and a half chicken, a pint of beans and Cole slaw. Talk about squealing. We arrived home a short time later, opened... More

The portions were small, the onion loaf was good. The service was good, my drink never made it below the half empty mark.

Great food at a reasonable price. Great atmosphere. We were there on Sunday at lunch time. They were very busy, but we didn't have wait for a table or the food. Place is much bigger than it appears. Waitress was gracious and was told to have a "blessed day." Appreciated that.
