Good Place to Eat

The little town of Lynchburg, TN doesn't have many eating establishments but we picked a winner. The food was very good and their pricing was extremely reasonable. Our waitress was nice and provided good service. The pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw was tasty as well as the jambalaya.

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!

Food was very good. I had the pulled pork sandwich and my boyfriend had the Jumbalaya. Very reasonably priced for anything remotely near Nashville...our bill came to about $20 for good sized portions. The cashier who I believe is the owner was extremely friendly. Right next to the Jack Daniels Store so was also very convenient.

We were not particularly thrilled with the food in this establishment. In fact it was not good at all. We hoped for a brew but of course it is a dry county. A brew would have made the food taste better. It is worth seeing due to the historical significance, however, so stop on in to see it.

Went for lunch with another couple. Both ladies ordered the same smoked chicken. One was still bloody and not done. Told manager and she said that's the way it's was supposed to be. No offer to replace . Did not eat uncooked chicken. Other sandwiches were overpriced and nothing special. Really not good quality food

The food was good, and the restaurant itself is worth seeing, but is over rated on it's barbeque. It is reasonably priced and have a decent variety of food. The kids really enjoyed the pizza. It tasted homemade.
