The place is an eye sore! I was told that the place was good and i would know when i found it! Well i found it and i shouldn't have even went in but i did anyways and i should have just left food was just Nasty and i didn't like it at all! I would not tell anyone about this place even if it was the last place that had BBQ! Nope wouldn't do it! Pure Nasty

This is one of those local places that you must visit so you can say you've been there. We ate lunch there during the Apple Festival and they did a great job of handling the crowd. Had the pork sandwick plate. Pulled pork was okay but tasted like it had been pre-made and kept under a warmer light (maybe because of the crowd?). Fries were 'cold' so be sure to order some other side if you're there when its crowded. The Brunswick stew looks awful but tastes good. We consider ourselves barbeque experts since we sample this cuisine throughout the country to try regional differences. This is about average barbeque in that regard but seemed to be a good restaurant overall. Be sure you know your order number. We heard them call one order over and over again with no one answering... I'm sure those folks got cold food by the time they found out whose order it was.

Out of four of us, no one was impressed!! Dry, very salty. It is a tourist attraction, i guess. Even the local guy we talked to did not recommend it, but I was overruled. Go to Cantaberry Restaurant for good food....no barbq there, but it is excellent food!!

We had a party of nine and came right at the busy lunch time. Some of us received our orders promptly, but it took a long time for some us to get our orders. This is because it was so noisy that no one knew when they brought out the food. A loudspeaker system or a light board to display the order numbers that are ready would be helpful. The food was very good and the portions are generous. Atmosphere is very casual and great for families.
