We were immediately greeted when we walked in, and the service was fast and friendly. However, the food portions - while quite tasty - are small for the price. $7 is not bad in a touristy place for a pulled pork sandwich, but it was quite small, and the side of baked beans was very small.

This restaurant specializes in their pulled pork and ribs which were average at best. I thought they were overpriced for the quality of the food.

The portions are small but tasted good. Friendly atmosphere. Short walk the distillery. Right in the heart of Lynchburg.

Really sweet young servers did a great job. Smoked chicken and pulled pork sandwiches were good. Reasonable prices and interesting décor. We enjoyed it.

We were in town checking out the Jack Daniels Distillery. This place was on the town square so we decided to stop in for lunch. As soon as we walked through the door we were welcomed by the staff and told we could sit wherever we liked. Within seconds of sitting down our waitress came and took our drink order.... More

Stopped in for a little BBQ after the JD tour. Nice little place, with family style seating. Lots to look at on the walls. Friendly staff, and fairly quick w the order. The food is just average, based on what I've had at other BBQ restaurants. Portions are small and a bit pricey.

Located on the town square it was a nice place to get something to eat after the Jack Daniels Distillery Tour. Service was fast and polite. Food came out quickly. Great Brisket. Worth stopping by if you are in Lynchburg.
