You can eat in, get it to go, or call ahead and order to take on a picnic at the local National Park! There is a nice amount of seating inside and there is outdoor seating available a very short walk across the parking lot.

This was the first time I ate at the Bar-B-Que Wagon, but it won't be my last! It was VERY good BBQ Pork. The sides were delicious,... More

We stopped her for dinner on our last night in town, and I'm glad we did. I am amazed at how many of the shops/restaurants in Bryson are Cash only, but thankfully this restaurant had an ATM. Everything we ordered was delicious, the coleslaw was amazing and the brisket sandwich was the best I've ever had. We will definitely eat... More

Our ribs and baked bean dinner to go did not disappoint. We would certainly eat here again next time.

Just soso as far as BBQ goes. It is very conveniently located. I probably not eat here again. The bbq had a lot of fat and gristle in it.
