Quaint atmosphere, and smells like it is, a smoke house. The meat was excellent, and the sides were good as well. The nacho's with pulled pork, and ribs (dry roast) were good as was the beef brisket. Moist and near perfect. Worth a stop.

Southern People are the best. Make sure you sign the sheet of the day - They put them on the ceiling.

After spending 3 hours at the distillery for the tasting tour we made it to the town square for some food. This little corner shop is friendly and had a wonderful assortment of different BBQs and fantastik pies. It seems to have an ecclectic country decoration of trains and celebrity photo stuff. Pretty cheap as well. We had BBQ platter... More

After the Jack Daniels tour, from the visitor center, I followed the path across the bridge to the town center, shopped around and saw this restaurant. Decided to check out the menu, Staff was warm and inviting, so I decided to eat here. The decoration is great, southern feel, the service was quick and friendly. That was the best part.... More
