Off the main drag, within walking distance but worth every step. We had the Ultimate sandwich platters, one pork and one brisket both were great served on garlic bread(some of the best I've had) comes with two sides the most noteworthy side was the potato salad(which they make). Service was very good and atmosphere was good

Name it and it just might be on the menu. Spent 20 minutes reading the menu and trying to decide what to have. WOW what great food. We enjoyed every bite. Wish they had a place here in California. All I can say is BBQ done right.

the food was good, but really overpriced for what you get, my husband left still hungry. The waitress was not very pleasant either, maybe having a bad day?

We have to eat here at least once every visit to Gatlinburg. I tried the Carolina Pork Sandwich and was not disappointed. It was delicious! cole slaw right on top of the sandwich was wonderful.
