Post Ocoee BBQ

Just finished paddling the Ocoee river and found Herb's on our way out of town. The ribs were amazing and the bbq baked potatoes are not to be missed. We saw some ice cream fudge explosion dessert served at next table that looked incredible. Sadly was not able to indulge in dessert. Stop and check... read more

Maybe it's because I'm team-vinegar, maybe it's because I've sampled the best bbq across the state - either way, I was disappointed with the BBQ here. It was too heavy and smoky for my taste.

Located half way between Murphy N.C. and the Tennessee state line is this small unassuming restaurant on the side of the road. But when you pull into the parking area and open your door you are over whelmed with the true smell of BBQ slow cooking just out back of the restaurant. You can even see the word pile they... More

Good place for chicken tenders and steak! The salad bar is always nice and the desserts are AWESOME! Friendly service. The only drawback is that it's a bit out of the way.

Enjoyed a great meal with 2 of my six children for Mother's Day. We like to food and service. We went about 4 to miss the crowd that comes every Sunday!

Great food and great customer service! About 15 minutes from town but worth the drive. We'll definitely be returning!

You really can't go wrong with the BBQ but this place is all about the hush puppies. All. About. The hush puppies. Best ever and worth the trip alone. Recommend the chopped pork BBQ.

The service was great. The gift shop was very bare! The whole building could use a facelift. I really wouldn't cost much to put some nice pictures up and add a few plants. Very outdated and bare. Very bare My food was good and the salad bar was yummy!!! Nice location

As we were traveling back from Chattanooga, we passed this joint and thought we'd stop in for a bite--so glad we did! The food is excellent and you get good portions. We came on a Friday for lunch in April, so the crowd was minimal and our service was spot on! I recommend the fried green beans and the ribs.... More

For anyone going on a Friday night, call ahead and make reservations, our wait was under 5 minutes. I go for the all-you-can-eat cat fish. And I over do it every time! The wait staff is great and friendly.
