Place was interesting, money attached to the walls, writing everywhere. I had the ribs, they were ok but I didn’t enjoy the Ff’s. Wife had pulled pork and the chicken both were 4 stars. I don’t enjoy paper plates and plastic silverware.

This is BBQ place and the food and service was very good. When we went for lunch the place was really busy and obviously popular. You can easily walk to the restaurant from the Jack Daniel’s distillery tour. The staff is fun and friendly. A...good place for lunch!More

This is one of places we were told to go to after doing the Jack Daniel tour. This restaurant was also on the show BBQ Pitmasters. It's small and fits the atmosphere perfectly. Not fine dining at all. The owner is there BBQ and loves...to talk to everyone. The food and portion sizes are great. It sits on the town square so you walk around after.More

This is the definition of a hole in wall in the best way possible. We came here prior to our Jack Daniel's tour and it's walking distance from the distillery, so it's easy to just park in the tour lot or in town (can get...to everything with a few minute's walk). This place was packed, but things move fast here and we were able to be seated quickly. We all got pulled pork sandwiches for a quick lunch and the BBQ was good (not the best we've had, but it was tasty). Portions were good and we left there satisfied. The restaurant itself is a no-frills country BBQ shack and every square inch of the walls are covered with either with writing or money from around the world. It's a good place to grab a quick lunch if you're in the area.More

Staff was polite and the food was out in a flash. Interesting motif. My daughter and I went there to try the grilled cheese on Crack which did not disappoint. Before leaving my daughter opted for a banana pudding which she loved. Definitely would stop...by again next time we are in town.More

If you're not white you're not welcomed here. You'll be ignored by the waitress until you kindly ask for service, she just will say, "oh, I didn't see you", Unbelievable, you become invisible in this place, even if it's not packed. After taking the order,...everybody's food it's ready in no more than five minutes, but for non-whites, fifteen minutes or more, just like that. You let the restaurant know the situation and not even an apology, whatsoever. The message it's clear, non-whites are not welcome in Lynchburg, they just don't want you there, neither your money, (when going to other places outside of Jack Daniels tour it's pretty much the same), it's unfortunate, sad. I would never recommend any non-whites (friends, neighbors, etc.) to go to the Jack Daniels tour in Lynchburg. The restaurant can say whatever to this review, it looks they've been in business for years, they know what they're doing.More

After a poor experience at Jack Daniels, we thought that we would get a barbeque sandwich at the Barrel House. You can expect a small place that could use some cleaning and decorating. Not quaint at all! Typical small town average vibe. On the bright...side I did like my pulled pork sandwich. Nothing exceptional here, although my sandwich was quite big. A big "MEH" for this place!More

Small place. One that you might call a whole in the wall. Very friendly and helpful staff. Food came out quick and it was awesome. Prices were competitive with other places we had visited. Tried the mild BBQ sauce. Loved it. Could taste the whiskey...flavor. Hubby tried and middle one and said it was good and even more whiskey flavor. Neither one of us was brave enough to try the ghost one. Would have purchased some but they only had the mild flavor to buy.More

Recommend to us by our tour bus driver this little dive did not disappoint….. The grilled cheese on crack was AWESOME with its melt in your mouth pulled pork. The pulled pork sandwich was also melt in your mouth with three BBQ house made sauces,...mild, medium and hot. Gives new meaning to your tongue will slap your brains out!!!!!! Sweet Potato casserole was a nice treat at the end… The staff was quick to get us in and fed in the small dining area.More
