Smoked ribs were exceptional! Sweet potato fries were delicious. Servers were friendly and helpful. Prices very reasonable. Check the hours before heading out though; they close early on some days. Overall, great dining experience.

We were skeptical at first but Danny assured us we should try his newest Blue Ridge restaurant. The space is clean with indoor and outdoor seating. Limited seating inside but wasn’t too busy when we were there. We ordered the family meal with 2 sides,...More

We did not care for the BBQ. The sauce didn't come with the meal when delivered to the table and we had to find it up at the register. Just didn't care for the food. Have eaten at other places owned by the same people...More
