The selection of meats was complete and hit every price point. We had pork ribs and beef ribs at our table with soups and salad bar. The ribs were great.

I always make it a point to eat here when we visit Gatlingburg. We have never been disappointed and this time was no different. Still my favorite BBQ joint.

Will not go back for a while..... Also sweet tea not sweet at all. Only gave us a handful of fries with our sandwiches? Very... More

Nice atmosphere but the A/C was way too cold. Prices about what you would expect in a tourist town. Food and service was good. Would recommend.
