Best BBQ I've ever had...seriously.

We just moved to Hendersonville and are working our way down the list of top Trip Advisor restaurants. We are so glad we tried this place!! I'm kind of picky about meat - very squeamish about fat, gristle, etc. My husband and I split the pit master plate, which had a split chicken breast, beef... read more

I've been to many bbq joints in my life, top rated to hole in the wall, and this is one I probably won't return to. Not that the food is terrible, but just not good enough. I had the brisket with potato salad and green beans. The Brisket was dry and rather fatty. It was served in more of a... More

Appetizer - get the wings, they are huge and have an outstanding dry rub; For dinner I had four bones (ribs) and pulled pork w/ coleslaw. The meat was great!! Tender & tasty, the quantity was such that I took home 1/2 my meal for the next evenings dinner. I was more than satisfied with the amount I had to... More

I'm hard to impress when it comes to food; BBQ is no exception. We stopped in this little gem hoping for some better than average BBQ and we got it. The quaint little place offered some of the best BBQ I've ever eaten. The sides were also very good. The 6 sauces in the table give everyone a favorite choice.... More

Awesome BBQ. Authentic ambience inside the restaurant. Good service. The place smells great...you're tastebuds come alive just from walking in the door. The food is delicious. I recommend a platter with a couple different meats and sides. The breading on the fried okra is great. Highly recommended!

I experienced my first fried green tomatoes. And it was amazing. Food was fresh and not greasy. I will definitely be coming back.

Ordered the pulled pork sandwich and the loaded fries. Portions are decent and probably on the larger side of what would be expected. The vinegar slaw is filled with flavor and tastes amazing. The pork also has plenty of flavor and you can tell it is a quality meat and also smoked to perfection. Your free to add the sauce... More

Everywhere I travel I look for Bar-B-Que, and just as Bar-B-Que is different from region to region, so it seems that from place to place in the same area varies a lot. Of course a lot has to do with the overall experience and the customer service, but it also has to do with the selection and the quality of... More
