Great little place

Not a lot of seating but the service, food, and atmosphere are just right for Lynchburg. Great place to go after you take the Jack Daniels distillery tour. The pulled pork BBQ sandwich is what I recommend.

We are from Louisiana and avoid any Louisiana food while traveling because it is usually not very good outside of the bayou state. My husband got red beans on the side and talked about how good they were until I tried a bite! He was right! They were cooked differently but that made them uniquely good! The staff was very...

We stopped in for a bite to eat after a Jack Daniels tour. The place is clean and the waitress was attentive. I ordered a loaded potato and my wife order rice and beans with a pulled chicken sandwich. She tried to have things substituted but it arrears they don't do that at all. The menu is limited and they... More

Tasty southern cookin and BBQ. The menu is simple but I highly recommend the dry rub ribs with some potato salad and baked beans. Friendly staff, too.

Adorable, quaint and fun; not to mention great food and service. The barbecue pizza and pulled pork sandwich were wonderful. Definitely check this one out!

We stopped here one evening after being out all day. There was only one other couple in the place. This should have let me know something was wrong with it being a Saturday evening. The place is very simple with stuff stuck everywhere. I got pulled bq plate and my husband tried the red beans. Neither one was that good.... More

Great coleslaw! I liked the bbq sauce too. The price was reasonable. The only thing disappointing was NO BURGERS! We could not find a burger in Lynchburg to save our life.
