“Wonderful Little BBQ Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Generous portions and friendly staff. Also has nice outdoor seating on the deck with a view of Lake Chatuge. This is one of our favorite spots to eat whenever we are in Hiawassee.

“Delicious BBQ, Outside Tables with a Lake View, Great Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

Great BBQ pork sandwiches, friendly and helpful staff, great value. We ate outside and looked at the lake (a narrow, distant view, but still, a lake view!) Recommended it to my friends who were also in the area for a conference. Good Brunswick stew, too!

“good food, good people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

There was steady flow of stay-in and take-out BBQ orders serviced by friendly and accomodating staff with wonderful food of either BBQ chicken, or pork. Choice of special blended sauces (or combinations) topped the choices of either platters (with two sides), or single meat orders. Either were very reasonably priced.

Not a dress-up kind of place... comfortable and friendly orders taken at the counter and delivered to your tables inside, or outside.

“BBQ At Its Best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Tiny place, tho if the weather is nice they have a deck overlooking the lake, which can't be beat. The BBQ is wonderful, and is also a great value. Don't look for much green, but enjoy their meats, sauces and sides.
