Travis is awesome to work with. Just got them to fix a lunch meal for a dozen people, on one day notice. Easy to find: Sparta, TN, from Hwy 111 go east on Bockman Way/Hwy 70 1 mile. Turn right on Mayberry St/SR1, and go 2 blocks to Blue Smoke BBQ on the left. Restaurant inside, and the Blue Smoke... More

My family decided to stop here after seeing the reviews here. This is a low key looking place, but don't let it fool you. The barbecue is great, and the owner provided great service. We had a loaded baked potato, which was BBQ, baked beans, cheese, sour cream, and sauce on top of a huge potato. My son said he... More

BBQ with a great taste. Cooks the food outside and served inside or you can take it and be on your way. Friendly people.

Good tasting BBQ at Blue Smoke! They've changed their location so it's a little harder to find now, but the food is still cooking and they probably still do events if you need someone at your event. We went by and picked up a couple slabs of ribs to take with us, very tender and juicy.

Our group of three tried the pork and the brisket, both of which were moist and fully infused with that great smoky flavor that makes barbecue barbecue (it's not the sauce, y'all). The portions were generous and the food was fresh--no stale buns here! Tasty home-made baked beans and mayonnaise slaw. The restaurant itself is definitely no-frills, but the food... More

We love BBQ. Do you love BBQ and you live in Sparta? If so, you have to go to Blue Smoke BBQ. They have 5 star BBQ and the service is awesome!

Local flavor, best dam m barbeque in White County and five other counties: most local bbq restaurants overrate their product; this is the 'real thing'.

Hours are limited but the food is good. Doesn't accept credit /debit as I recall but still worth stopping in for every now and then.

We grab a pint of their great barbeque pork often and head home for our lunch. It is very good most of the time. We have had some (not many times) where it was a little too much vinegar for our taste. Limited hours.
