Awesome dinner includes three sides plus hush puppies. I had the fresh-picked corn on the cob, home style collards, BBQ beans and a cold Coors. Plus, live entertainment too: a solo guitarist sang Johnny Cash tunes with his Barry White voice. It was a perfect...More

We eat here everytime we come to this area and this trip was no different. I had the brisket meal and my wife had the pulled chicken. Both were very good but not as good as I remembered it being. There was live music upstairs...More

I ordered the brisket and my husband got the pork spare ribs and chopped BBQ. All of which were delicious. We stop in and dine there every time we are in the high country. This place is consistent and delicious.

Good service, friendly staff, excellent location and good food. We always do the brisket when we hit a bbq place and we enjoyed it very much. Be sure to mix the hot bbq with the sweet bbq to have a great experience.

We were quite happy with our meals; my husband's 'combo' was huge. But I simply can't support the use of paper plates and plastic cutlery. How much of that do they send to the dump in a week?
