“Best ribs in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Excellent babyback ribs . . . fairly expensive but the ribs are falling off the bone and the sides are quite large . . . can't wait to go back

“Stop in after swimming at Elk Falls, what great BBQ.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012 via mobile

We were wet and dirty so we sat outside. We love great BBQ and we were blown away by the tasste. The fried pickles were just the topping on the cake as they say.

“Busy place on Friday evenings...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012 via mobile

We stopped here during a recent motorcycle trip. This is located in the corner of an old shopping center. The place was packed. Even most of the ourdoor picnic tables were full. It was a rainy night but that didn't stop what looked like 85% of Newland from coming out to hear the live bluegrass music in the "pickin parlor". The restaurant was clean, the food was good and the staff friendly. You order at the counter then try to find a seat, they bring your food to you. The pork was flavorful and the sides were good. I've eaten bbq from texas to carolina beach. This was good. Not the best we ever had but much better than some other more highly touted places we've tried. It's not fancy but it was a fun stop on a very wet night and a great place to hang out with the locals.

“Good pork plate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

I had the large pork plate with potato salad and baked beans. The meat was good and too much for me to eat, should have gotten the small. The potato salad was fresh and made with redskins. The baked beans were tasty and homemade as well.
