The first time I ate here I had the chicken tenders and potato salad. The tenders were definetely the best I've had. The restaurant is very casual. Place your order at the counter and it will be served when ready. On my second visit I ordered 12 piece smoked chicken to go. The chicken was outstanding but I had only... More

Very nice people. Pork extremely dry, coleslaw so-so,smoked chicken a winner. Plates were crowded with the servings, should use bigger plates. As BBQ places go, I would rate it average.

We've eaten here twice before and loved it but this visit was just not the same. The ribs were cold and dry and the sides were not what we ordered. We also bought a bag of pork rinds which we returned because they were so hard they couldn't be chewed. As we are in the area for the entire summer... More

We stopped here for supper after a hike at Linville Falls. We were able to order immediately, and sat down in the music room. Our food promptly arrived, and it was delicious. Most of us in the party had BBQ sandwiches, although a few people got ribs. There were several sauces to choose from right on our tabletop (the Mad... More

The staff is always great and the owners are willing to make it your best meal. They create their own dishes to include BBQ and their own homemade... More
