Best ribs in Gatlinburg maybe, but I wouldn't say in America. I've had better elsewhere. Don't get me wrong, the ribs are good and the pulled pork and the baked beans. My wife also loved the cole slaw. The value was pretty good and the service was great. It's a good all-around eatery but not the best in America.

Great ribs and other barbecue and excellently prepared sides. The service was friendly, personal and well timed. Great beers (although the Porter could have been a little heavier). Liked it so much we returned when we noticed a Happy Hour the next day and the wings and dips, service and beers were still super.

The waiter was very nice and helpful and was prompt with delivering food and keeping drinks full.If you go around 4;30 you can beat the crowd and get in promptly.

We ate here tonight, and were more than pleased. My gf had the Ale Steak and I had the kick back burger. Her steak was so tender it was suprising, especially for the good price. My burger was excellent. We also had the Reese's chesse cake which was incredible. It's a must eat when visiting town and in the less busy area of Parkway! We loved it, and we had the best service.

Can't even begin to describe the wonderful taste they have with their barbeque. Our favorite around the area.
