“Yummmmm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

One of the best BBQ in town or area. We don't even mind that they don't accept credit cards. It's well worth for us to run to cash machine just to get their BBQ sandwiched.

“Credit cards not welcome!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

I love patronizing local, independent businesses but the folks in Franklin, NC and Clayton, NC are making it hard for me. This business does not accept credit cards as well as many others I ran into this weekend in these towns. These towns would learn something from Gatlinburg, Maggie Valley, and Helen where they cater to tourist. It's just amazing to me how a restaurant that is on a major tourist route to and from the Atlanta metro would refuse to cater to the Atlanta crowd. So I took my credit card and I drove across the street to Chic-Fila.

“So much for so little”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Looked this place up on Tripadvisor during a trip to Franklin. It's a little hut setup near an RV park. There are some outdoor tables and a little "hut" called the "heated hog den" that was heated to a toasty comfortable temp by a wood stove. We were glad as it was in the 40s outside. We had their pulled pork sandwich special, their most popular, that comes with a side. The pork was very good. Sandwich size was very good. Sauce was excellent. I had the baked beans which were to die for. I mentioned it to the owner and she said the secret was in the sauce. The coleslaw seems homemade and was very good. This is one of, if not the most popular BBQ places in Franklin. Oh, the wife said the iced tea was excellent. I'll go there again, hopefully soon. They are only open from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm Monday through Saturday.

One of our favorite places to go. Mr. Cash is a special man. Always upbeat and funny and man can he cook a brisket! Tender, spiced just right and lip smackin good.

“Very Good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We went here for lunch after walking the Whistle Stop Antique Mall. We went here on recommendation from the nice lady at the welcome center in town. Glad we went. The place does not look like much because it isn't. They have a cook shack to take orders from and a few tables under a closed in carport. We loved it. The food was great. We both had the pulled pork sandwiches. And the sweet tea was fantastic. The service was friendly and helpful. This was a very relaxing stop.
Do go here if you're in the area. You'll be glad you did.
