“Great Tasting BBQ”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

We have eaten here twice. Both times the BBQ was very good. We have tried the fries and hushpuppies and they also are very good sides. Very convenient for lunch after tubing on the river in the morning. They have a screened in porch that overlooks the river where you can sit and eat.

“Best ribs my whole trip!”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

This was the first place I ate on my trip. I could have gone back every night. The best ribs, multiple sauce choices. This was the perfect meal. The atmosphere was perfect & is right on the river.

“Good food, wonderful setting by the river”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

Our BBQ sandwiches were tasty. The meat was a little dry, but the sauce made up for that. The fries have a fantastic seasoning. Its a no fuss restaurant which is perfect for us. After a day of riding horses in the Smokies it was the perfect place to get a quick, satisfying meal. The hostess and waitress were pleasant and kept our glasses full.

“Best pulled pork sandwich in the Smoky's”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

After spending the morning hiking we were ready for some food. We had the hand pulled pork sandwiches and a chicken sandwich. The pork is smoked on site which must account for the great flavor. It was very juicy and tender. They offer a selection on sauces. Our waitress suggested the sweet & spicy. It was excellent: nice and sweet with an after glow of heat. The hushpuppies served with a spicy mustard sauce are not to be missed. They were crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Combined with the mustard sauce: excellent. For dessert, the ooey gooey was enough to share. It has a warm chocolate chip cookie with very cold ice cream & hot fudge. An awesome combination. Make it a point to have a meal at the Little River BBQ. You will not be disappointed. And as a bonus, we saw a herd of cows come down to the river for an afternoon dip. We had a grand time!
