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

I am heading in to this review without having read anything about Herb's and never having been here before. My nephew and I were on a motorcycle ride for the weekend and decided to stop here. Apparently, my dad had mentioned something to my nephew about it before and I agreed to stop. As far as appearances go, you don't... More

We stopped at Herb's today after rafting. It was recommended stop after a long day. The food was less than mediocre. There were four of us and the trout was obviously farmed raised by the taste. The smoked turkey was clearly sliced sandwich meat smoked, the smoked sliced pork and chopped pork were bland and had not been smoked more... More

I will say that we got our food to go, so maybe that was part of the problem. I don't even know where to begin. I called to ask about food to go for 6 ppl. When I saw the menu later, there were options like "meat by the pound" which could've been suggested. I was told the kitchen was... More

Our local hidden gem! They have great NC BQ. My favorite is their prime rib special on the week-ends. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

We enjoy trying out different local BBQ restaurants when we travel so were excited to go here while in Murphy after seeing all the positive reviews. The pulled pork was average at best but the sides were good. My husband said that the tea was too sweet and that's saying something because he loves it sweet. It was a Friday... More

It is 15 miles west of Murphy, but worth the trip every time. When you just have to have BBQ this is the place. Good hush puppies, too. Sunday dinner specials are very reasonable and always good.

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.
