Perfect place to eat fried chicken, hot dogs, baby back ribs, fried chicken livers, etc. If you want the southern experience this is the place to go. Yummy.

Smoky Mountain BBQ is one of the best restaurants in Ashe County. They are always busy no matter what time you go. They have the best fried chicken and I love there sweet potato casserole. The staff is very friendly.

My husband & I ate there on 10/31/2014. This was the worst BBQ we have ever had. The chopped pork was wet & had a very strange taste. The sides, mac & cheese, sweet potato casserole, green beans & I can't remember the other side, were not any good either. I didn't bother eating my dinner. We love Woodlands in... More

BBQ must have been scraped from the bottom of the pot. It was so moist and sopping in grease. I put paper napkins over the BBQ and squished out some of the liquid and added to my Brunswick stew. Hush puppies good---thankful for that.

We hit Smokey Mountain Barbeque on every trip to West Jefferson. Food is consistently delicious and the staff is always friendly. One of our family favorites!

I generally don't like to stand in line to order my food but the place was jumpin so I figured it was good. I had never tasted NC BBQ and they gave me a sample of several types to choose from. I liked the food and they were very patient. I'll be back to try the rest!

Order at the counter and take to your table. Tasty barbeque with tangy vinegar red slaw. Definitely a local institution.

My second time here. We used the drive thru this time. As we pulled up to the menu, the person taking the orders noticed that we were still checking the menu. He wisely said, take your tome and let me know when you are ready. Wow! This a first for me. After ordering then pulling up to the window our... More

My hubby and I are practically BBQ experts. At one point, he had a professional obligation to eat BBQ. And I can tell you Smokey Mountain is doing it right. We eat here, with our kids, with inlaws, each and every vacation in Ashe County. The pork bbq has delicious flavor and is lean, chopped shoulder meat without any less... More
