Good food!

We ate here on a recent trip and were pleased. Service was fast and friendly. Food came out quickly and everything was very good. Even the kids were happy! Will be back on our next trip

My boyfriend and I ate at the gatlinburg location today for lunch. We had eaten there on previous trips and the food was okay. This was a different story and we are both very ill now. It's our last night of vacation and cooped up in the room sick is not how I planned to spend it. Definitely not recommended.

Gatlinburg location is a block back from the main thoroughfare. I cannot find words to describe how awesome every dish we ordered was. We tried burnt ends, ribs and BBQ pork. If I had room, I would have ordered more. Sides of slaw and beans were also good. Service was excellent. Do NOT miss this place.

If you're looking for a good brisket sandwich, you can't go wrong by coming here. Food was good, service was quick. Would go here again when in Gatlinburg. Really liked their Carolina sauce.

Ample parking.Casual dress. You may have a short wait around dinner time. Ribs are excellent, which is always my choice.Other family members are always pleaded with whatever they order. You won't leave hungry. Service is very friendly. Prices are in line with all other restaurants in the area. Family of four around $60 with tip. Enjoy!

The food is excellent! Friendly service. From the time you arrive, they make you feel welcome. Portions are over size, but great. Worth the visit.

Good food, nothing special. Service satisfactory. Had burned ends that were good. Tried with all their sauces, regular sauce best for me. Didn't care too much for their slaw, but that's just me, my wive liked it.

Full rack of ribs covered in house BBQ...hands and face smothered goodness. One of the best BBQ pits I've ever tested!
