We read the reviews and had to check out Scott's. They were right! If you want good smoked food you must come here! The brisket,pork chicken are wonderful! The side are just as good! People are very friendly and the service is fast.

Stumbled across Scott’s Walk Up BBQ the other day while in Cartersville Ga. and gave it a try. You’re going to find a basic building and dining area that is no frills but is clean. They do have outdoor seating that is covered if that is what you want. The menu is very limited but that’s not necessarily bad. Went... More

One of the best places to eat in Cartersville! We love the owner, Scott, and his family! Great people, great food! You will not be disappointed! The brisket is the best!

Nothing fancy but gooooood BBQ. I had the BBQ sandwich, the BBQ had a good flavor & very tender. For dessert I had the peach cobbler with ice cream, it was delicious.

Delicious. Great BBQ atmosphere. Consistently good. Brunswick stew is excellent, and the brisket is perfect. When the brisket is gone, it's gone. Great family restaurant.

This ranks right up there with Wallace and Southern Soul. Very lean always consistent pulled pork. Scott is usually there with a friendly greeting.

My wife and I eat at Scotts about once a week. BBQ is always great! Scott and his staff make it even better. You need to try Scotts homemade ice cream with toasted coconut.

A group of about 9 friends had lunch. We enjoyed the covered patio seating. The owner came out and chatted with us during our lunch. I had a BBQ poor sandwich which that was delicious. I enjoyed the selection of sauces. The lemon pie was good but could be a bit more "lemony". It became very busy during peak lunch... More

Stopped in for lunch on the way to the beach. I had the burnt ends(only on Friday's while it lasts), pulled pork and Brunswick stew. It was all delicious. It's the only place I've been to that you can get burnt ends by the pound. The other highlight was the owner. One of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. Took... More
