Good BBQ Joint

Small, drive thru with 2 picnic tables (no indoor dining area). Fun and funky little BBQ place. I had the pulled pork plate. True Tennessee 'que.

No doubt this is the best bbq in dickson, but it's really difficult to catch open. By time I get home from work its closed already. Great food, terrible hours.

I have been eating here since I was little (40 years) and there is no other like it. If you come through Dickson and do not stop , you should be arrested!

It's a small stand with picnic tables. It's pulled pork BBQ is the best. Great smoked flavor, very lean. The hot red sauce is not thick but is the best. Have been stopping here for BBQ since I was a child many years ago. Family owned and very friendly. This is one of those diamonds in the rough. Don't forget... More

Doesn't look like much from the outside. Walk up service. Picnic table outside if you would like to sit a while. Best barbecue around. You'll be back.

This small family owned, take out only, BBQ "shack" is an old time favorite in Dickson. Best BBQ hands down. Only negative is their hours of operation. Come and get it early if you want it for supper.

Look's like a Dive...Simply one of the best of many BBQ joints in Dickson. Drive up, get out and walk up to the window and order. Family owned and operated for decades! Great sandwiches and better ribs...ALL to go.
