“Breakfast”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Was a reasonable place to get a buffet style breakfast with NO WAIT. I don't think most are aware of it. Was located right next to our hotel, the Old Creek Lodge.

“Great Place for Lunch”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

This was a good quick stop on our trip and we weren't disappointed. I didn't do my usual intense investigation of Trip Advisor to see where to eat before hand, and randomly picked this place off a map.

They have every kind of BBQ you could want. My wife and I both had the brisket with mac and cheese, and we were very happy. As others have pointed out they have some pretty unusual sauces too. Overall a great place. My one tip is even if you don't eat here - try and avoid the chain restaurants in Gatlinburg when places like this exist. You can get most chain restaurants back home so why not try something local?

“Underwhelmed”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

The ribs were a disappointment. The meat was tough with mediocre sauce, Service was below par. We will not return.

“Pretty darn good”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

Food was top quality. Fried corn was fantastic. Loved it. Very sweet. BBQ chicken on salad a bit salty but tasty. Delicious pulled pork sandwich. Great fries. Service was very good. Attentive, helpful, informative. We had Crystal as a server. Highly recommend.

“Mouth-watering barbeque”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

The hickory smoked barbeque was the best I've ever had. It was tender, flavorful, and there was plenty of selection. The food was flawless. Deep fried corn on the cob is an unusual idea but it was tasty like movie theatre popcorn. Complements to the knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt staff. Because of the carefully prepared food, the facility, and the location, I would say this is an outstanding restaurant.
