“Small BBQ joint, HUGE character”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Best place to eat BBQ in southwest Tennessee. If you are going to drive the Cherohola Parkway, this joint is a must. Eat here at start of trip or at conclusion. Slammer at $6.50 is great, dipped in aujus and served with cheese & sauce. Just plain good BBQ.

“Great meat, sauce on the other hand......”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Located at the foot of the Cherohala Skyway in Tellico Plains

The pulled pork is very good quality, moist and flavorful.

Brisket is surprisingly good, this ain't Texas, but real good.

The only fall down is the sauce. All sauces have a base, tomato, vinegar, mustard etc. unfortunately this sauce appears to use Mc Donald's SWEET TEA! Lord awful SWEET! Several shots of Tabasco needed to break the sugar. Add the SWEET slaw..... Insulin shock.....

Seriously, the place is good just go easy on the sauce......

“A little Red Barn with a Big Baked Potato and BBQ!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

Great BBQ and the potatoes are massive and loaded with lots of pork. Large enough to share for sure unless your supper hungry. The beef brisket is also great. Drinks are served in cans or bottles not a fountain drink.

“Monster BBQ!!!!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We were driving through Tellico Plains and saw this BBQ shack beside the road. Not knowing what to expect we ordered a BBQ Pork sandwich, slaw, and potato chips. The lady brought us our plate with a massive size sandwich. We had a meal just eating the pork that was falling out of the sandwich. When we finished we were VERY full and never thought of eating dinner that evening. Great BBQ sauce with brown sugar as a base.

“Small menu - fabulous BBQ”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Owned and operated by two great young women who know how to put out super BBQ. Hickory smoked baby back ribs to die for. Pulled pork, beef brisket, smoked chicken, side of baked beans, cole slaw and potato salad - all excellent. Tellico Plains is a beautiful area to visit. KramBonz BBQ was an unplanned treat.

The loaded baked potato is a meal in itself.

Sorry, couldn't delete bar scene below. No bar. BYO!
