I stopped in at the Big Shanty Smokehouse for lunch the other day and generally found it a pleasant experience with good barbecue.
I ordered the pulled pork plate and found the flavor to be solid and their home made sauce a good attribute. The string bean and baked bean sides were good, not great, and I found the "sides" selections a bit limited. I'd like to have the choice of french fries at a barbecue place, but that;s a minor quibble. The star of the show was definitely the Q, and when I return i'm interested to try their ribs and brisket. They also had rib tips and smoked wings for appetizers, and those sound good as well.
I found the small dining room clean, and the drinks are u-serve and contain tea and sodas. If I had one complaint it's the service was a little cool. For a small town place with a homestyle feel to it, I feel the employees could have been a little warmer in their service.
In the end I will return here when in this area, hoping to try out some of their other selections and maybe catch the employees on a better day.
