Smokey Mountain BBQ, West Jefferson NC

Little surprised that pretty good BBQ available in the mountains. Eastern NC BBQ sets the standard but this same style and good. Fried chicken better than most places. Ribs were outta sight.

Spot was recommended to us by locals and we decided on drive through to take home and enjoy out on the deck. Portions for plates were good sizes and was quick to be ready. We had pork plates, rib plate, and a smoked turkey sandwich. Good sides: fries, slaw, beans, hush puppies. Banana pudding for dessert!

This place is always packed...and for good reason; the food is awesome and great price! I know its a barbecue place but they make great fried chicken too. See for yourself if it doesn't live up the hype.

Food has always been excellent and service great. It is always clean and a great place to eat! The BBQ is great and you add the type of sauce you want which I like. The red slaw is the best!
