We had this restaurant cater a family reunion in nearby Hiawassee, Georgia. The food was delicious, good old-fashioned southern BBQ. We had pulled pork, ribs, turkey, mac and cheese, beans, cole slaw, rolls, cobbler, banana pudding, and sweet tea. They provided six different sauces. The food was really good standard BBQ fare, just what you'd expect from such a down home restaurant. The portions were generous -- we had enough leftovers to feed almost everyone another entire meal.

We have eaten here twice and enjoyed our meals both times. The Hushpuppies are so good! We love to dip them in BBQ sauce and it's a great way to sample the sauce choices since there are several. The fried catfish is good and so is the beef brisket. Love the mayo slaw. We would eat here again!

I had the beef brisket sandwich. It was good, but it wasn't like the brisket I am used to. It was more like roast beef. The service was good.

Road trip to visit with friends at their recommendation. Was really a great decision. We got there between the lunch and dinner crowds and were seated immediately. Friendly waitress and Cleanliness were noted right away. Menu is varied for a BBQ eatery and they offer tons of sides...not just your slaw and beans. The serve HOT little hushpuppies while you read the menu which I feel in love with. Drink order arrived without a hitch, entrée order taken and delivered quickly. Our crew enjoyed the Ribs, Brisket (unusual for Georgia!) & chicken. All were just great. Sauces are in five different bottles on the table...they don't drown the meat before you taste it...so you can pick your favorite to compliment the tasty meat. Sides were great...Mac & cheese was a do over. Take home box was needed as portions were ample. All in all...it reminded me of those world famous Texas BBQ stops. Well done gang....this crew will be back!

Drove about an hour to have what should have been great BBQ. I found the ribs very average and the sauces were great. The side dishes were good, but nothing to write home about. I would give the restaurant another change, but is not worthy of a long drive.
