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

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

Had seen it on TV, we were close by so thought give it a go. I had the Brisket Sandwich, OK, brisket was nice but not a wow. Now my friend had the Pig in a Pocket, that was really tasty. Yum Yum. Place was quirky and the staff were really nice. Would visit again if in the area.

The meats were excellent. The table was set with 6 delicious sauces. Had to try each of them. Wonderful! Tried chess pie for the first time. Truly a new treat for a Yankee.

As a fan of non chain restaurants, I love this place! Small but wholesome and great (GREAT) food! In town for a visit, put Center Point on your bucket list. Great wait staff and quick with service!
