The BBQ chicken was delicious as was the trout - both perfectly prepared and moist. Go for the side dishes rather than the salad bar, unless you really crave a salad. Salad bar is straight out of the bag/can and a bit over-priced. The hush puppies were a bit crunchy on the outside, but did have a good flavor. They... More

Someone else wrote--and I agree--the place doesn't look like much from the outside so we were a bit dubious. However, the food was plentiful and outstanding. It was certainly worth the wait---which is why we decided to give the place a shot since there had to be a reason for people to wait. This place still uses wood smoke and... More

From the outside, it doesn't look like much. Then, when you walk it, it's part gift shop, part hostess, part history of Herb. Once you get past the no frills look of the place, be prepared to be treated with friendly southern hospitality and delicious food. We had the ribs and a pulled pork sandwich with a piece of pecan...

On a recent trip to Cherokee we passed Herb's Pit Bar B Cue and decided to stop for lunch. We were glad we did. I ordered the sirloin tips with baked potato and salad and my husband ordered the pork barbecue with potato salad and slaw. The salad plates are very small so be aware if you like a big... More

This was an overall great experience starting with the fresh well stocked salad bar. We had prime rib and I requested the "end cut" and found it to be very delicious, spicy and flavorful. The baked potatoes were well prepared and the chocolate sundae dessert was most wonderful but almost too large a serving for two people. We have heard... More

AWESOME!! is all I can say. if these guys weren't over 4 hours away, we'd eat there practically every day. Brunswick Stew is fantastic. the BBQ is so smoky, you don't need any sauces. service is super friendly. the 1 thing you need to know: they aren't immediately in Murphy. they are several miles west on US 64, about 4...

I want a refund ..I drove 26 miles to... More

Waited 25 minutes for our food even though they were not busy. When we finally received our food, the ribs (which are supposed to be their speciality) they tasted old and reheated and the sides were skimpy. Had to wait for everything, even had to go find someone to pay our check. I was so looking forward to some great... More

We are on a bit of a BBQ trip at the moment and made the journey to Herb's. We were not disappointed. We tried both the sliced brisket and chopped pork and both were very good. The sauce is vinegar based, which suited the lightly smoked meat very well. Hush puppies and beans were good also. The restaurant was busy,... More
