We went here on our short vacation during Labor Day and we had a great meal. They were out of a few sides, but I imagine that they were very busy on Labor Day weekend with a Vols game in Knoxville. We had a concierge at our resort recommend this place. While the staff was not overly friendly or attentive, 2 of their picnic baskets fed 9 people a pretty hearty meal. The BBQ sauces were pretty great too. Great to have a home cooked meal out on vacation.

Driving by seemed like a great place for some authentic Southern BBQ, and it did not disappoint. Food was delicious, with excellent service.

We tried three different places in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area that had smoked meat or barbecue. This was definitely the best! Small family-run business just a few minutes from the center of Gatlinburg where the owners care and put great care into the food and service. Yet it comes down to the meat when you own a barbecue place! Excellent pulled pork. Truly nice wood flavor with great "bark" (charred outside) without the sauce. you can tell this meat was smoked low and slow with a variety of wood Sauces were good and accommodated various styles (Carolina, Tennessee, St. Louis). Green bean side was good.

Nearly low fast food prices for a great meal! Next time we are in this area we will eat here! If the brisket and ribs are as good as the pork (and I bet hey are) this is a winner!

Drove by for 3 days before we ordered some up, should have stopped earlier. Had the ribs, very tender, spicy hot sauce is the way to go. Nice selection of sides. Well worth a stop, Not fancy good for family.

We ordered the pork and the chicken. Both were great tasting and very tender. Chicken just fell off the bone when you picked it up. Greenbeans and baked beans were good too. Would definatly recommend eating here instead of the many chain restaurants.
