This is by far a must place to stop and eat and don't forget to tell everyone about. The ribs are so good so tender fall of the bone licking good.

This is one of those places that you love to tell your friends about. I first went to this place when he was in a trailer with picnic tables under a carport down at the nearby intersection. It takes a bit of looking to find it now, but it's well worth it. Simple menu, but all of the barbeque is... More

This place may be hard to find...it may not be a 5 star restaurant...it may look like a hole in the wall place...but this is the best BBQ you will find in the area. It's a one man shop, but he is the nicest guy & the prices are FANTASIC!!

This little place is out of the way for most visitors, but it is worth the short trip away from the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg/PIgeon Forge. They have a strictly barbeque menu, with the normal sides, but is is the real slow-cooked barbeque, done right. Very clean, friendly, no credit cards.

My husband and I ate here and just loved it. It's away from the main strip and not fancy, but the owner is very nice and the food is great!
