I'd like to preface this review by saying, I was so excited to try this restaurant. I was hoping to find a "Favorite Place" to eat in DeKalb County. I am sorry to say, I left disappointed and sad. At first, it seemed it was going to be all I hoped for, because as we walked towards the front door,... More

The Mountain Parkway Grill was recommended by a friend of my wife who is from the area. We will be sure to go there again on our next visit to the DeSoto State Park. It is a little out of the way but well worth making a special trip.

This restaurant is now the Mountain Parkway Grill located on Hwy 68 just down the road from their old location. The food is still excellent and the service very good. We had brisket and pulled pork on Texas toast and grilled pork chop. All were excellent.

We happened on this establishment while exploring the area during the busiest weekend of the year - the World's Longest Yard Sale! But what a pleasure! The waitstaff was very friendly. While extremely busy, we were greeted almost immediately. My mother, a Hoosier well experienced in tasting Breaded Pork Tenderloin, claimed the one served here is the best she's eaten.... More

They have the best smoked chicken, hands down, that I have ever eaten! I am a true Southern Belle, born and raised in the South, and honey let me tell you, I know BBQ, and being Southern Baptist, I know chicken, too. (smile).

Excellent food, great service and the prices are very reasonable. They have great deserts, but the Grilled Pork Chop is better than most restaurants Steak. They are only open Thursday, Friday & Saturday right now but it is worth the wait and the drive...........
