The food was very delicious, it reminded me of my grandfathers BBQ. Everything I had was good and fresh tasting. And the service was nice and friendly.

Trip advisor guided me to another hidden gem. 5 tables inside and two outside. Small old building and a small parking lot. Inside has historic décor varying from newspaper clippings to the owner's (Mike) tools he used when he worked the tobacco fields as a child. Onto the food. The baby back ribs are fantastic. They do not come with... More

Enjoyed talking with all of you. Talking about a tobacco basket and then find out why you were in town. Unreal!! Glad you enjoyed your food and I sure have enjoyed the cigars. Thanks for eating with us. More

Awesome food, great service. Small hidden gem! Couldn't ask for anything more. Family type restaurant. My boys loved it, which is a task all by itself.

if you're ever on Ringgold Rd, look for the Hickory Pit Bar-b-que, a little hard to find but worth the effort. Friendly folks and great bar-b-que. Not in the mood for bar-b-que, try the smoked chicken salad sandwich. Sweet tea just like Grandma use to make. Too good to miss. Enjoy. We stop every time we travel from Marietta, GA... More

This is excellent barbecue at very reasonable prices. The place is small, fun decor and friendly folks. The sauce was good and the pork ribs were smoked to perfection. It was a stroke of luck to find this place.

I love BBQ. Checked trip advisor for good places to eat and came across this little BBQ place. Made sure to stop on the way back to VA from our Chattanooga vacation, and was pleased with everything we got, except the fries which were just kinda meh. I got he pork BBQ plate with baked beans and coleslaw. I'm picky... More

I ordered spare ribs that had a tasty smoky flavor. I will be back as many places don't have flavorful ribs and it's more about the sauces.
