We ate our first meal in our week in Townsend here on Sunday and our last meal in the Townsend the following Saturday. ASlthough the first meal was much better than the second, both experiences were good. The barbecue pork and barbecue beef were great as were the french fries, corn on the cob, salad, fried okra and fried pickles. The lemonade (according to my wife) was fabulous. I loved the iced tea the first time we went there and thought it was some of the best tea I ever had. However, the iced tea I was served on the second visit was not good at all. The ribs were only so so. Both the spicy and the mild barbecue sauces were very good. However, the hot barbecue sauce was so thick that it didn't taste like a barbecue sauce at all and wasn't very good. Our server on our first visit was far more attentive than on our second visit but both servers were good. We enjoyed eating on the screened in porch with a view of the river (despite the humidity on our last night there), although inside seating is almost as plentiful. I would definitely return.

The owner of Gateway recommended this to us. What a surprise to find the best baby back ribs ever.They are slow cooked and tender with homemade sauce. Got the meal for two for 20.00,could not eat all of the ribs and fixings.Good value for the money.Service was great,was like going home for a meal,treated like family. If want a great meal and family atmosphere here is the place to go.Can not wait to go back. ps ...try the dill pickles.

The owners of Little River BBQ purchased this business from Smokin' Joe's a couple of years ago. The barbecue is the best in this area. They serve a lot of food for the price and the iced tea is very good, too. There is a large seating area indoors along with a back porch which is screened with a nice view of the river. We eat here often and recommend it to others.
