Wanted something besides deep fried food, so we stopped in to Bar-B-Cutie in the plaza. Got the Beef Brisket, Baked Potato with just Butter, and baked beans. I was disappointed they did not serve beer with the bbq, but oh well. As soon as I took a bite of the potato I knew it was not butter in there. I... More

MACinMTN, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Your feedback is important to us. We're sorry about the butter and margarine mishap. We do our best to provide excellent service and it seems we fell short here by serving you up a potato with margarine instead of butter. We do serve beer, but only at a few locations.... More

We just moved to Franklin about 3 months ago and I saw this BBQ from the road several times. I tried it out the other day and the food was DELICIOUS. I had the ribs, wet and they were mouth-watering. I WILL BE BACK.

come here and look at the expansive comfort food menu if you can't decide what you want to eat! They have a bit of everything that will make you feel well fed. Love the bbq potatoes and the tea punch for sure. Good food for little money and they do a great catering business too!

Never had a baked potato piled with barbeque pork til I came to the South. Still don't like them, but they didn't understand me when I asked for a baked potato with butter. The gave me a baked potato and a couple oleo packets. When I ordered a sandwich, it comes with a bag of chips. I could've bought the... More

Thanks for coming in and taking the time to leave a review. The stuffed spud is a favorite here and we wish we could have made it that way for you too! It seems like there was a misunderstanding on the butter which we do apologize for. If you'd like to sub the chips for a side item we'd be... More

Labor Day found myself looking for some place open & ran across this place. Made me nervous that the place was pretty empty, but was craving BBQ. Gave it a try and it wasn't bad. Not great, but not bad. Friendly staff, lots of options. Tried the pulled pork, ribs and slaw and beans.

We live four (4) hours away and every time we are in the Nashville-Franklin area we always eat at Bar-B-Cuties. They are much better than the Buddy's BBQ in eastern TN ever thought about. Fast friendly service. They bring the food to your table. Part fast food, part set down restaurant, but ALWAYS good food. Wish they had one in... More

I took the family here this past Sunday for lunch. We like to smoke up our own barbecue, but when we're too busy, we go to Bar-b-cutie. The food here is excellent and their banana pudding is also a big hit. There are other places around to pick up barbecue, but some of those are just not consistent with their... More

I usually go here for lunch. You order & pay at the counter and they bring the food to your table. Drinks are self serve. They have many options, especially for side dishes. However, I almost always get the bar-b-que pork sandwich and either onion rings, fries, cole slaw or mac & cheese. They have 4 or 5 different sauces... More
