This seems to be a well-kept secret in town. It's small and simple (place your order at the counter and wait for your name to be called), and the price is very reasonable. This was the first time I ate at the Bar-B-Que Wagon, but it won't be my last! It was VERY good BBQ Pork. The sides were delicious,... More

We stopped her for dinner on our last night in town, and I'm glad we did. I am amazed at how many of the shops/restaurants in Bryson are Cash only, but thankfully this restaurant had an ATM. Everything we ordered was delicious, the coleslaw was amazing and the brisket sandwich was the best I've ever had. We will definitely eat... More

Just soso as far as BBQ goes. It is very conveniently located. I probably not eat here again. The bbq had a lot of fat and gristle in it.

Nice view to the river and friendly local charm. The classic signage can't be missed. Options are limited in Bryson City...but if you have a BBQ craving this place will satisfy, but will probably not win any BBQ culinary awards. Pork sandwich was just ok, Hamburger and fries were solid. Good BBQ sauce selection.

Our family of 4 visited for dinner. The place was a bit crowded because it was dinner time but our food arrived quickly. The prices were reasonable, very large portions, and best of all the beef brisket was delicious.
