We have always loved the Nolensville location but happened upon this one. Service was impeccable and prompt. The food was hot, fresh, and so so good. It is in a great location, near an outside mall. Must try their smoked half chicken, Mac and cheese...and redneck tacos. My word it was delicious.More

There's really not much to say about this place, other than I would not recommend it. It's a waste of time, money, and calories. There are so many better BBQ places close by, this is not even worth considering.

I usually pick up a pound of pulled pork as our family loves it..HOWEVER on Saturday, May 29, it was the worst experience ever!! When I got it home, I opened to find the worst looking garbage I have ever seen, IT STUNK and it...was full of fat, grizzle and looked like it was meant for the garbage disposal. My dogs turned away from it. I do not know what this was, but it was awful to sell this mess for a price. My daughter had friends over and they could not believe this stinky food came from martins, on top of it we noticed pieces of bone in it. As I stated before we usually love this meat, but not today! Highly upset I wasted money on that. Beware, when you get pulled pork, check it before you drive off as this was a drive thru order.More

Good BBQ, laid back atmosphere, and super friendly staff. We had dry rub wings and ribs, both were fantastic! Hand cut fries and mac and cheese was also so good. Won't be disappointed!

The title say it all. First impression was a good looking place and the two gents manning the ordering desk were friendly, funny and helpful. Ordered the smoked turkey platter and catfish fillets with sides ($2.50 each) and drinks. Beer is ordered as well and...delivered from the bar normally but our host said he'd bring the beer personally but guess he neglected to inform the bar waaiter. The amber ale was very good and the bar keep walked thru the bar yelling my name for the drink order. Signaled him and said the host had brought the beer already but could I get that one too. He replied, 'Nope' and walked off. That rudeness irritated me and killed all thoughts of ordering any more drinks. The turkey was delicious, potato salad and green beans okay but the catfish was so-so. The waitress delivered the food and never came by our table again during the other 40 minutes we were there Add desert and you can roll for about $65+ with bad attitude from the staff. Too many bad points to salvage an average rating. Do NOT recommend this place.More

Ugh! Worst dinner ever. I ordered take out and requested a specific pick up time, and was a bit surprised to see it ready when I arrived over 10 minutes early. By the time I got home, not more than 5 minutes later, the food...was cold! The brisket, was horrible. Besides from being cold, it was fatty and tasteless. The slaw looked promising, then I took a bite and basically gaged it down. It couldn’t possibly taste that bad. I wonder if it was rancid, because it was quite possibly the worst slaw I’ve ever eaten. Save yourself a painful experience and pick another barbecue place.More

If paying with credit/debit card at the drive through, watch out for unauthorized tips penned on the receipt after you sign. I later found two transactions where someone had added an $8 tip to the receipt. These were large family carry-out orders where the extra...amount wasn't readily obvious.More

It was very tasty We got three of their...barbecue sauces and they were all excellent couldn't decide which one I like the best.More

My wife and I have never been to a Martin's, so we figured we'd try some tonight for takeout. We ordered some brisket and cole slaw and the brisket was very tender and flavorful; it was spiced well and really melted in your mouth. The...BBQ sauce was what threw us for a loop though. We had 4 options to pick from and we chose the Jack's Creek as it was described as the least sweet and we much prefer a smoky to sweet BBQ sauce. The heat from the sauce was nice, but it was vinegary to the point of being a salad dressing and it was very thin, so it was more of the consistency of au jus. The cole slaw was just okay, but we had it late in the day and maybe it's better earlier. Overall, the brisket was delicious and we'd get it again, but would use a different sauce. We've heard their smoked wings, pulled pork, and ribs are good too, so we'll have to give them a try another time.More

It is in a strip center type of shopping area. So, if not too gigantic an RV, I think you could find parking.
