Decent food and inexpensive but the letter home would be short. My daughter got the BBQ beef and did not like it but we enjoyed the pork and the hush puppies were really great.

The BBQ Chicken was really good. The side dishes were adverage. The building appears to be a previous fast food restaurant, nothing really special about the atmosphere. Definitely not the best BBQ I have ever had.

Buddy's is a local chain with several locations in Tennessee. Their BBQ is very good and the prices are very reasonable. The atmosphere is what you would expect at a fast food location but adequate. I like their smoked half chicken. Great flavor and for the bigger appetite. Their BBQ sauce is awesome! Tuesdays they have a full meal deal that can't be beat. Saturday is all you can eat ribs. Definitely worth a trip.

This BBQ is about a 5 out of ten, the BBQ sauce is an 8. Be carefull in the drive thru. Old system and your order us bound to be wrong. Ordered Mac and cheese with no fork. Fries and one ketchup packet. Smokiest dawg for kids had chili all over it and cut onions. Driving back now. Annoying

Stopped a picked up a meal for take out to eat in the hotel. The food was priced at a very reasonable price and included a substantial amount of food; certainly good value. The meat and BBQ sauce was good, the accompaniments were also good.

I don't know if there are other BBQ places in this tiny town, but I'd say this can hold its own against other places I've been. No reason not to eat here that I could see.
