The food was good. The service was great - very friendly. The loaded tater chips were huge. The other dishes we ordered were fairly small portions, especially considering the price. This is a tourist area where prices are inflated and this restaurant follows suit. I would recommend it based on food and service, but not on value.

My husband and I stopped here for a lunch date. It's very small inside but we had heard the food was superb. Our waitress told us you could get everything on their buffet but after my husband went to look, there was only a limited amount you could get. We both decided to order from the menu, ribs and pulled... More

We stopped by for dinner with friends. We have visited the restaurant several times over the past several years when in the area. The service was good, but the food wasn't prepared quite the same. Everyone had the ribs, and everyone agreed that the ribs were over-smoked (if their is such a thing). It was difficult to get rid of... More

This was by far the best barbecue I've had in a long time. This isn't just smoked barbecue-it's hickory smoked bare cue. The sides were delicious too. I highly recommend the cold slaw. My husband had the fried catfish and onion rings. Loved the catfish and the onion rings were from scratch, not pre breaded and frozen. I highly recommend... More

Man oh man, is the food great at this place! We were caught in a rainstorm so pulled over here. The ribs were to die for...in fact all the food was! Stupendous service! Go visit!

We were coming in from Chicago to Knoxville Tennessee to pitch my invention on the Shark Tank. Well after that I drove in with my kids to go take a little R&R in Gatlinburg which I love so much. For the last 9 years I have drove past this place always smelling the food in that smoker when we rolled... More

Heard about this place about 6 months ago. My wife loves bar-b-que ribs so I had to take her. Tony was there and making guests feel welcome. He even helped me pick out dessert. I don't normally do desserts but when he pointed out the Lemon Pie, I couldn't resist. Oh so good. Highly recommended
