I don't always dream about bar-b-que but when I do I dream of Phil's. I love all of the sauces but my favorite is the blackberry sauce. If you haven't eaten there yet " what are you waiting for"

I normally discount BBQ locations in the south because their meat usually tastes all about the same. I'd heard many good things about Phil's and finally got to try them for myself. I was hungry for ribs one day and decided to do take out on some pork ribs for me and beef brisket for my wife. I ordered a... More

The absolute best most consistent bar-b-que I have ever found! This time we were driving home from Banner Elk and called ahead to order take home. They are the greatest. Fixed us up with racks of ribs all set to go in the oven when we got home. Everything was wrapped well and made it easy to heat up. You... More

After reading the reviews we pulled off the highway and made a beeline for this place. You guys were right on! We had the brisket - not fatty at all and very tender, pulled pork - pretty good and our overall favorite for smokey flavor and tenderness - the pork wings! These were followed closely by the baked beans, which... More

The pig wings are mouth watering. Cant beat the brisket and ribs are great. The sides are great but I always eat meat and never finish sides.

LOVE the BBQ and the beans (the beans are a must). The potato salad is one of the best I've ever had. The people here are very friendly and great Christian people. I love supporting a place that is so God-centered (not to mention the good food) and will be back soon, I'm sure!

This little off the beaten path restaurant serves wonderful barbecue with delicious sauce and their barbecue beans are the best! Their smoked turkey sandwiches are great. I have not had anything that was not tasty!

Not a fancy place just real good food. Prices are very reasonable with daily specials. Staff is friendly and helpful. If you want a fancy place, go somewhere else. If you want excellent food and value - this is for you. Besides doing a great job at food preparation, they are community focussed having recently supported the local Red Cross... More

Great restaurant! Highly recommend the dry rub ribs... a little spicy but they are great. BBQ sauces are wonderful. The hot is definitely my favorite..however the mustard base is good as well. Never had a bad meal here by any means.
