“Best Ribs & Fixins In Pigeon Forge!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

The ribs, chicken and fixins at this place are amazing. We stopped by based on Trip Advisor recommendations. We sure are glad we paid attention. Excellent food, huge portions (4 people ate off of one rack of ribs), great service. Don't be fooled by the exterior. This place is great!! Make the drive and you will be glad you did. Easily beats all of the BBQ restaurants on the Parkway. There is bacon in the mac & cheese!

“Heapin' helpins' of bbq!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

My husband and I visited this place when it was the Rib Shack, so we were prepared for the rustic nature of this place that some find surprising. We come to the Smokies fairly often and bring our own meals generally. One exception is that we pick up ribs, brisket and the like for one or more of those meals. We were anxious to try the new "shack". We arrived on Saturday, and were pleased that they hadn't run out of ribs for the day. We got a half rack of ribs and a half chicken-- no sides-- to go. I am not exaggerating; there had to be 5-6 pounds of meat in our containers, for $25.00. We ate it for four separate meals! The ribs were fabulous, with real smoke flavor and a nice, subtle rub. They were great without sauce. Even weirder-- they were UNBELIEVABLY good cold. In fact, that is how I ate them for two of the four meals. The chicken was meaty, smoky and the sauce enhanced its deliciousness. I recommend this off the beaten path place. Nice owners, generous portions, excellent food. Just get there early-- bbq this good can't be made in unlimited amounts. If you miss it; you miss it.

“A real BBQ gem! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

This place is a little off the beaten path but hands down the best BBQ in the country! We were looking for the best barbecue in TN and glad we finally found it! A must stop if you are in the area!

“Love at FIRST bite! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

I don't know where to begin. Everything was EXCELLENT! Best BBQ, MAC N' CHEESE, PULLED PORK, BAKED BEANS, POTATOE SALAD, & SWEET TEA EVER!!! Even tried some amazing bacon wrapped, cream cheese filled, smoked jalapeno poppers! Oh and the customer service is second to none. My husband, 4 yr old, 1 yr old and I made 2 trips here in 1 week during our Spring Break stay.

Tip: Call ahead the day before to place an order. They sell out fast! Closed Sunday and Monday.

Will post pics soon!

“Great local place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

This is the best barbecue in Sevier County. Everything is made fresh daily and the meat is so good it can run out before closing.So I suggest you call ahead and place an order so it doesn't run out. Nothing fancy, just great food.
