“Good food friendly service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Food was good service was friendly. They were out of sweet tea. What is BBQ without sweet tea. BBQ was very tender. Tried all the sauces. Like others have said, don't be put off by appearance. Baked beans were great and cheese fries.

“Great Barbecue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Don't let the outside appearance put you off. This is a great place for barbecue. Forget about the fast food and "same old" buffet in Cherokee. Go here for some down home BBQ. The homemade sauces are great. They have 5, including honey mustard and mayo pepper. I mixed a little hot with the vinegar sauce on my brisket. Had enough meat for a second sandwich the next day.

“So good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

This was my favorite place in Cherokee! I wouldn't have even noticed it if I hadn't seen it on here. It is made to order. Fresh, very tender BBQ! I will definitely be back!

Real hickory smoked BBQ pork, brisket and ribs. Smoker goes 24 hrs/day. Nothing fancy, just really good food. Large portions. Super friendly, family owned.

“Don't judge a book by its cover . . .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Wow! We drove by the place first . . . not the most inviting building, but the reviews on YELP were GREAT, so we decided to give it a chance . . . so glad we did. This was some of the BEST BBQ I have had. The owners were friendly and warm. It was the end of the day, almost 6 pm, when we walked in. They let us know all they had left was one pulled pork sandwich and some brisket. That was just perfect for us. The sandwiches were brought out right away, homemade sweet tea and coleslaw. Perfect! Then the owner's Mom brought me some 'white-sauce' for my brisket sandwich. WOW!! We even ended up buying some. Go early . . . once they are out of food, they close. You do not want to miss this. Less than a mile from the Casino.
