We ordered food to take out, which was ready in very little time. The pork and beef were really good, and generously served. For the price though, I think they can do better than canned green beans. At least they were honest enough to tell us though. The side orders were below average generally. It cost us $23 for two... More

This place hit the spot! Great BBQ and great sauce! We came here on vacation and it happened to be the closest place around us... Good thing because I loved the food! I had the beef brisket dinner and my family members all had something different. We all enjoyed it. A+

The concierge where we were staying told us this was rhe best bar-b-que in Gatlinburg, so we gave it a try. She said that everything was freshly made every day. My husband ordered the half slab of ribs with sides of potato salad and cole slaw, and I ordered the rib/brisket combo with cole slaw and mac and cheese. Each... More

Coming from the land of BBQ, (Birmingham, AL) I was skeptical at first. But my wife and I had heard wonderful things. We both ordered the pork special, (ribs, pulled pork and sausage) the ribs were juicy and fell off the bone. (Dreamland has better flavor but not as tender) the pulled pork was also flavorful and juicy but the... More

Oh how I've thought of these ribs since eating there. They were perfection and the sauce was as well. The surroundings are a bit worn and there was almost no place to park even though there was only one other couple there! We had purposefully driven to this one rather than the other one because of the reviews and parking... More

The BBQ here is delicious! I got the pulled pork and it barely needed BBQ sauce. Not dry at all. Also got corn on the cob and beans, which were great, too. For all that it costs around $12. My boyfriend got the chicken and brisket, and they were delicious, too. Can't beat that price! Just great to have BBQ... More

All I can say is it should be on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. We eat here every time we visit. I get the brisket sandwich, with baked beans and slaw. Even when full, I want more. So dang good.

A must stop.... Very good BBQ for a reasonable price. Got the pulled pork and beef brisket combo dinner. Very good meal. You may want to consider getting there early as they were running out of everything the evening we were there. Was a busy day for them and the process of supply and demand was too much for them...
