“BEST BBQ IN TOWN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Not only do they have the best bbq, their Steaks are great also. This restaurant is worth the wait if you want Great Food. The portions are very large and the service of the Waiters is wonderful. Have had dinner here many times and never had a problem. My wife ordered a rack of pork ribs, she had so many left over that we took the remaining ribs back to the Lodge we were in. Warmed them up in the micro wave and they were still out of this world good. If you ever have a meal here, you will be back.

“I like da ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

So it's Christmas day, where can we get something to eat? Calhoun's was full, but the service and food was hot and good.

The ribs have a tasty smokey flavor, have a fair amount of meat, and are slobbered with TN BBQ sauce. The Prime Rib is pretty good too.

Good service, fair prices, clean, good eats.

Every entree I've tried I've loved. Service is always top notch. Just a nice place you can count on to be a place you can bring friends.

“Yummy as always.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

It seems to me we eat here every time we come to G'burg. But here's the reason...it's always good. Our visit wasn't during a busy week so we were seated and served promptly. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the food was hot, tasty and there was plenty of it. I'm sure we'll be back!
