Good Food

We decided to get off the highway on our drive across TN, and stopped at Blue Moon BBQ on a Friday night. The food is good, and there are many choices. You place your order at the counter, where they weigh the portions as they plate the food. The many choices are listed above the counter and on a... read more

Near the fairgrounds and just off I-40, this little barbecue spot has the very best brisket I have ever had. Super flavorful and moist. Huge selection of sides. Good barbecue also.

I saw an ad for the Blue Moon in our hotel and the wife wanted ribs, a match made in Lebanon. All the food is smoked daily in house and everything looked good. My wife was more than pleased. Thanks Blue Moon.

I won't be visiting again. The food was not the problem. The waitresses were not friendly and made us feel as if we were imposing.

I would have given this a 4.5 but the BBQ Sauce killed the visit for me. Pros: - Great looking BBQ Joint - Sides (cornbread, potato salad) were fantastic. - Meat was near perfect. Cons: - BBQ Sauce: Neither of their homemade sauces were very good tasting.

Upon arriving you could smell the smoker in action. Very pleasant. I ordered the half rack of ribs with fries and Mac and cheese - don't judge me the green beans looked old sitting in the tray :). Fries and Mac and cheese were really good. The ribs were a good portion but just average in flavor. The sauce was... More

If you're in Lebanon and hungry, like I was, give it a try. Perhaps I'm a bbq snob from Texas, but I thought the ribs were a bit dry. They also do not have a hot rib sauce to top them off with. It's very basic. The mac n cheese was pretty good but nothing to write home about. Same... More

Very good BBQ at a great price. We have never been disappointed by going to Tom's. We love the brisket and all the sides. We are always stuffed when we leave. They always have a Groupon and we try to use it when we go. It makes for a great affordable dinner with family and friends. They have great music... More

Swung by after Men's Conference in Nashville. Awesome brisket, sausage , chicken and BBQ. Slaw is to die for. Great prices and incredibly quick service. Group of 12 had food within 10 minutes of walking in the door.

This place is amazing! Every time we go visit our family in town there's no question we're definitely getting some Blue Moon! And you can order a whole brisket to-go (call ahead). It's great to take home and enjoy even when you are hours away. I tell everyone I know that's heading down to stop and eat some of the... More
