People were so friendly and the food was great. I had pulled pork platter with tater salad and red beans and rice. Followed by a slice of home made pecan pie. Sat right beside there smoke room ah yeah. The dude kept coming by me with trays of smoke sausages, yes sir. Really cool interior as well.

Food was good, tiny portions. On styrofoam plates with plastic utensils. Service was perfunctory at best, disinterested at worst. Skip it.

We stopped in for a lunch after our Jack Daniels tour. The place is nothing fancy and as with any good BBQ, the chairs don't match! The food was very good. We had the pulled pork sandwich special for lunch and it was very tasty. I'm not sure they have the bigger meals like ribs, but it was still filling.... More

We travel alot and like finding restaurants that are not chain restaurants. When we saw this restaurant we thought it looked unique and gave it a go. This is on the square right in the middle of town. It was busy but they definitely didn't have enough staff for number of seated tables. Staff was way to busy to greet... More

Great little restaurant to head to after the JD tour. Food was tasty, our party had pulled pork, red beans and grilled chicken. Prices were very reasonable and service was excellent.

Very good. Had the half rack of ribs. Nicely done. Meat came off the bone clean. Hot BBQ sauce had a great flavor. The waitress was nice and very accommodating. If your in Lynchburg and need a meal, this is the place to go.

The overall meal was delightful. My husband and I knew it would be the place to eat since there was a long line waiting to get in. Best BBQ I have ever eaten and the service was amazing. Only thing I didn't like was the long tables that you shared with strangers so if you are looking for an intimate... More

Good food, but nothing to really write home about. The atmosphere is interesting, but that's about it.

Stopped here as a result of a recommendation from our tour guide. The food was amazing and the service was fast and swift. Not too much "conversation" from the wait staff but that was fine! A great place for BBQ!
