“Don't know why this restaurant is rated TWICE...it isn't TWICE as good as anybody elses BBQ!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

But, it's a good BBQ.....wings are great,BBQ chicken is as good as you will find anywhere...the pork plates are pretty good - not my favorite NC BBQ but I can't argue with the success of this place!

Service here is always informal and usually pretty good. Relax - it's not "fine dining" it's picnic tables, bbq and beer in a rustic mountain setting.

I have previously reviewd this place on the other "woodlands" page...don't know why we have it listed twice here but here it is! Read the reviews on the other "woodlands" page for details.

“The best meal of our vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012 via mobile

We came here after a log day at Tweetsie Railroad. We got there just as it started to get busy and were seated right away in the lower level. Our server was just perfect. Everything was so fast and our drinks were never empty. I got the pork nachos and they were AMAZING! Just delicious! There were so many, I couldn't finish them all! Hubby got a barbeque sandwich. The pork was so good, it just melted in your mouth. We also shared onion rings that were really good. When we went upstairs to leave, there was a young lady playing the guitar and singing. She was good! This place is cheap too! You have to try it!
