My family visited here on our last night in Gatlinburg due to the great reviews on tripadvisor. The ribs are excellent and the sauces that are provided are great as well. The kids said that the rib sandwiches were their favorite meal for the whole trip. The staff was also very friendly. We were lucky enough to get a table but be prepared to take your food with you as seating is limited.

This place is delicious! We have passed by it so many times during our stays in Gatlinburg and never stopped but this time we did and wow am I glad. We have found a new lunch favorite and its very close to where we stay. Friendly service and good prices.

Skip the chain restaurants and tourist traps- this place is the real deal! I have to admit, we chuckled when we first passed the place- it doesn't look like much... but we decided to try it anyways. Super friendly and fast service! We took our food back to our cabin to eat- I'm glad we did- we would have embarrassed ourselves in front of strangers carrying on about how much we liked our food! The pork was excellent- not at all fatty. It had a great smokey flavor. We also enjoyed all the sides we tried- great coleslaw and baked beans, good mac & cheese, and excellent green beans! The portions were generous- a great value!
So glad we took a chance on this little place and we can't wait to come back to Gatlinburg and visit again!

We did the sampler and thought that everything was great. The only disappointment was that we went the night before we left or we would have gone back. We will go the next trip down to Gatlinburg!
