The ribs...Ohhh, the ribs!

Don't worry about the interior - it's clean and decor is just okie dokie. It's all about the ribs - fall off the bone, tasty, meaty ribs. Had to go back twice in one week! Be prepared to wait during busy tourist times, but it's so worth it. Just a short drive off exit 59 from I-40.

We discovered this place on the way home from a trip to Asheville. Now, ANYTIME we pass through Swannanoa we have to stop here and eat. This is REAL barbecue. This stuff is smoke on site. You can go around back and see the smokehouses and the wood. That's what I like about this place. Great food, Great prices. I... More

Every time we are in this area this is our fueling stop for the belly. It is always a challenge to find a place that can accommodate our celiac kid but due to the purity of their ingredients, there are a number of options so we can all eat together. There is a reason they are always busy here, the... More

Had better elsewhere, but will do in a pinch. Why must you chop pulled pork? But service was very good.

I eat this BBQ almost weekly. This is the best BBQ in the area and you won't go wrong eating here. They even cater if you have a big event.

They are a short drive from Ashville's downtown. The food was delicious, the staff friendly, and the food came fast. They have in door and out door seating. They have good jams playing in the background, this ads to the dinning experience. The prices are equal to the value and quality of the food. It's worth the visit. I left... More

Excellent pork, cooked over wood the way it's supposed to be. Not some sugary, ketchup-laden "barbecue" but just simple, savory meat. The side dishes are excellent, as is the service.

For some reason people in the mtns cant make decent bbq & I don't like vinegar based but I'm not really picky about my food. I got chicken & pork take out & it wasn't even good enough to save the rest for later & my dog didn't want it.
