I'm continually looking for good bbq when I travel because I don't find much of it where I live in the Pacific NW. Unfortunately, I was burned out on bbq after a week traveling through Tennessee and North Carolina so when I dined here just...before our flight back to Seattle, I ordered the wings instead of brisket. The wings were good. Lots of meat. Get the sauce on the side as they really slathered it on. My wife and daughter both ordered chicken as well, fried for my wife and as a sandwich for my daughter. We licked our plates clean. Can't wait to get back to Nashville and try the bbq here.More

This restaurant is a nice place to get a variety of sandwiches and sides similar to Dickeys Texas Barbecue. They could have done a little better on the smoked sausage sandwich by using a full slice of onion instead of just the outside rings, but...it was alright.More

On the road looking for a quick bite for dinner near the no tell motel. Bar B Cuties a smokehouse chain I had never heard of was around the corner. The weather was rain, sleet, ugly. The place and the parking lot were empty. Uh...oh. Nice friendly lady at the counter took my order. Large pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw on top, Carolina sauce on the side. The sandwich was humongous, with good smoke and smoke ring, pickles too. The sauce was their version of a whipped saucy deal, not just peppers and vinegar. This was all excellently presented. It was great for a chain joint. The best part was the warm hospitality at the counter. Definitely coming back.More

I was flying out of Nashville Airport and was looking for a good place to eat dinner. I came across Bar-B-Cutie on a Google search of restaurants near BNA. The reviews looked good and the photos too, so off I went. Bar-B-Cuties has been around...since the 1950s and has multiple locations in Tennessee, Georgia and Texas. They specialize in Pit-Style barbecue. The restaurants are decorated with a country vibe with license plates on the walls and photos of days past. They serve up many many favourites like Smoked Chicken, Pulled Pork, Brisket, Ribs, Links etc. On this visit, I tried a two-Meat Plate with Smoked Turkey and Brisket, served with Baked beans, Mashed Potatoes and a side of gravy. The food was delicious and well prepared. My Turkey was lean and moist, and the brisket was fall-off-the-bone tender as well. The service was great as I was served by a long-time employee, who had a great sense of humour and was very attentive. I've had a lot of barbecues over the years some memorable and some I would not return to. Bar-B-Cuties has been around for a long time, and their quality, consistency and reasonable pricing keep people coming. There was a long lineup for take-out, and almost all the seats were full, so you know it's a popular spot for Barbecue in the area. Next time you are flying out of Nashville airport and looking for a good Barbecue joint, give Bar-B-Cutie a shot.More

Meal was an online order delivery to our hotel room. Ribs were delicious as well as the sides (BBQ Beans and French fries). This meal arrived hot and was well received. On the other hand, Beef Brisket sandwich was not to my liking. VERY thick...slices of very lean (dry) brisket with barely a touch of BBQ sauce. (I had called the restaurant directly after placing my order because I had forgotten to request sauce but was assured the sauce comes on the sandwich). Not so much. Not to be overly picky BUT we were asked to choose a sauce for the ribs and I specifically asked for the sauce to be served on the side. Nope. For two meals we received one set of cutlery which included one napkin - for ribs. I may have had a sandwich, but my side was a salad with huge pieces of lettuce - but no fork, knife, or napkin. Paid $50 for these meals. Won't be in a hurry to visit Bar B Cutie. Disappointing.More

To be fair, I expect a lot out of a good barbecue restaurant. The staff here are VERY friendly! The food came right out after we ordered it. I had a regular barbecue sandwich with spiced apples and my friend had a barbecue sandwich served...on cornbread with turnips as a side. The barbecue wasn't bad, but, it was seriously lacking in flavor. The cornbread was awful and I definitely would not recommend buying it. The turnips definitely came out of a can. The spiced apples, however, were great! This is more of a "fast food" restaurant than a barbecue restaurant. I would not eat here again.More
