I grew up in Hendersonville. Center point was the place to get the best BBQ ever. When I moved away, I always told people that the best BBQ in the world came from Center point. Not anymore. I am saddened by the fact that it is the worst I have ever tasted. Came home for a reunion and stopped to... More

We had great service from our waitress on Sunday lunch meal with our pastor & his wife. We had a variety of BBQ plates & fried okra with ranch dressing as appetizer and they were all good. I especially like the fried cornbread served with the BBQ on top with coleslaw added to the BBQ topping. You have 4 or... More

This restaurant has been in business for over 50 years, possible more. It is Internationally known and has been visited by a lot of famous people. If you like gooood tasting Bar-B-Cue you must stop in and have the Famous Three Little Pigs sandwiches along with some of their sides. I have been going there for loooooong time and I... More

This restaurant was recommended as the best place for BBQ in the Nashville/Goodlettsville area. While the aroma on the outside of the establishment was tempting, the food really lacked what we had hoped would be an introduction into the world of southern barbeque. While the price was right, the meal was fair.

A must go for the best bbq you will ever have. Get the brisket it melts like butter. The restaurant has 8 choices of homemade sauce from sweet to extremely hot.

The brisket was really good. The sides were very good as well. I really liked their cole slaw. The BBQ was okay. I have better locally back home. Definitely worth trying their Brisket however!

Amazing BBQ and a small town feel. What’s better than great barbecue for lunch or dinner? How about having that barbecue restaurant close to home. Centerpoint BBQ is just that place. Located just north of Nashville in the city of Hendersonville you can find Centerpoint BBQ. This location has been open since 1965 and has been featured on Drive-ins, Diners... More

Horrible service after we ordered we never saw the waitress again and no drink refills or to see if we needed anything. Actual meal was even worse than the abysmal service. The pulled pork was luke warm and had a horrible taste. This is a waste of your time and money! Do not eat here.

Decided to eat there after seeing it on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. The place had food all in floor, food on the windowsills. The waitress was pleasant enough but once she brought our food never saw her again... no drink refills. The bbq meat was only lukewarm and the portions were small. Way overpriced for what you get. Food did... More
