“The way BBQ should be!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

Cannot believe it took me so long to discover this place only 25 minutes from my home. The pulled pork with sweet fire sauce was yummy. The baked beans were cooked with meat in them and they were some of the best I have tasted. I will definitely be back!

“Best in Kingsport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

I used to live in Memphis, one of the capitals of barbecue, and it spoiled me. Since I have been back in the Tri-Cities, I have been searching for good barbecue without much luck. This place has the best barbecue in the area

“Nom nom nom!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

The inside of this restaurant is small, but it becomes clear that the owners were more concerned with focusing on the quality of their food, and they definitely nailed it! It's hard to find a place where the sides are as good as the main dish, but you will find that here. My food was ready and waiting for me before my card cleared, and they carried it to the table for me. Great place to eat!!

“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Some of the best BBQ around, Owner was nice and service was friendly. The price was a bit expensive but the food was well worth it. The Blueberry Dream is a good dessert.

“Great BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We found this place by accident. What a great find! I had the pulled port sandwich. It was full of meat and cooked just right. Very good service and nice folks. I can't wait to stop again.
