We ate lunch here after a tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery! We had the pulled pork plate with two sides. Service was very good, Food was good. This is a small town BBQ café, you sit at long tables, food is served on Styrofoam plates, with paper napkins. You seat yourself, "sit wherever you like"!

My husband and I ate here on Dec 30 for lunch. Although there weren't very many choices, the food was amazing. We are from Kansas City and have tried BBQ all over the world trying to find something that comes close to hometown quality and this is the best bbq outside of KC we have ever had. The only downsides... More

My fiance and I went for lunch yesterday. Food was good. Atmosphere was good. The owner walked around to each table, asked every customer where they were from, held a very pleasant conversation with them all. We will definately come back the next time we are in TN. The fudge pie was amazing!

By far the service was great, the food was amazingly well prepared and if you're one to love good down south cooking then you will definitely love this place. The bbq sauce went perfect with my BBQ Platter. I also had the Smoked Sausage sandwich which was simply wow. The sausage was amazing and the rest that complimented it was... More

This is a hidden gem on the square in Lynchburg, Tennessee. My favorite is the stuffed baked potato - pulled pork on a baked potato with their own amazing sauces. Great iced tea too.

Maybe I set my sights too high or maybe we were there on an off-day but it was quite disappointing. I ordered a backed potato stuffed with shredded pork and cheese. The cheese was shredded which would have been ok if the potato and pork had been hot enough to melt it but sadly, they weren't. The pork itself was... More

THE FOOD MADE ME AND MY SON SICK. We both got a type of food poison and spent the whole day in the bathroom and in bed. If you were here on 11/25/14 and also got sick, please reach out to me. Overall the food is terrible, everything the sell, you can tell was not fresh or prepared there. All... More

Some of the best bbq pulled pork I've had, friendly staff, great local talent singing the blues, country and folk music. The atmosphere is friendly and all sit together. We were there the weekend of the International Barbecue competition.
