This is the only place we go to when visiting family in Powell. We love their pulled pork and pulled chicken the sides they have to offer are always delicious, and the lemonade taste like a Lemonade Shakle Up if you put a slice or two of lemon and a pack of sugar Good Stuff

Doesn't matter what your craving is, this BBQ is really good and you can pick from chicken, ribs, pulled pork and brisket. A little pricey but worth it.

Great restaurant for family dining. Best BBQ in town, beef brisket is a family favorite. The kids like the smoked turkey and corn pudding. Ribs and pulled pork are excellent as well.

Been here a bunch of times. BBQ is consistently very good with great sides albeit a bit pricey. Chicken is the best meat, but you can't go wrong with anything. Very good sauces (I like the spicy). Great for catering.

This place is so-so. I had the North Carolina Pulled Pork sandwich. It wasn't too bad. The bun became too soggy. The baked beans were fantastic and I highly recommend them. The mixed greens were too mushy. The service is fast and friendly. If I had to change anything, I would highly recommend they toast the buns. The atmosphere is... More

Generally super. Occasionally average. Forget the sides (they are OK, and the coleslaw is a highlight) and pig out on the meat. Priced right, prepared right, and piled high. Eat in, take out, and carry on. Pulled pork, chicken, ribs - you cannot go far wrong.

BBQ cut off the slab right in front of you to make excellent sandwiches on a bun. A lot of fixings to put on the sandwich such as pickles, onions etc. They also had a good selection of side dishes to compliment the sandwich. "So much food for a reasonable price." You won't be disappointed.

Needs to become more knowledgable about Gluten Free. The food is excellent. The service is fast. Highly recommend this place for BBQ.

Outside of NC, this is the best pulled pork I have ever eaten - flavor, tenderness, and bark. We had the "Dine In Family Pack Meal" with plenty of pork to pile high in a sandwich. Our selected sides of "Baked Beans W/Brisket" and "Corn Pudding" supplied lots of rib-sticking goodness. The cornbread was warm and moist. The banana pudding... More
