Best Barbarque

Best Barbarque in Ga. by far. Cooked to perfection and great side orders, friendly service and great taste. Did suggest that they try adding peaches to baked beans since we tried it is N.C. and it was delicious. Said they would.

Outstanding! The food here is fantastic! We stopped through here while visiting the area for some hiking. This place definitely hit the spot after a day on the mountain. We had a little bit of everything and it was all great!

We both had the chicken bbq. Was extremely fresh and tasty. Great job and place. We sat outside overlooking the lake, which was very nice. Excellent value for food. Great job. Will definitely be back next time we are in town.

While staying in the Georgia mountains for the weekend, we happened up this place while out for a drive and starting to get hungry. The seating inside is very limited, which during the warm season, would be no biggie. We did sit outside even though it was chilly. Nice view of a lake. Food was served quickly and was good....

Have been here many times and have never been disappointed. Usually get the pulled pork or pulled pork sandwich, but they also have good hot dogs and 'Pigets', mini-BBQ sandwiches for the kids.

Nice place. Slightly below average food. Heat up the meats in a microwave. They might have cared about the food once but not the day i ate there. Little food, below average quality and highly priced.

The bbq pork sandwich and bbq chicken were absolutely delicious! I am a huge bbq fan and this was honestly the most moist tender meat I have had in a long long time. The nustard based sauce we tried was not the house specialty and it was average and they put it on a little bit heavy for my taste.... More
