We've been to Smokin' Gold Barbeque several times. We've come away saying "that was yummy," "much better than last time," and "maybe we should cross this place off our list." We went yesterday after having said to ourselves a year ago that we probably wouldn't...More

Had the Brisket Sandwich, Baked beans and potato salad. Brisket melted in my mouth, potato salad and Baked beans very good.

Get the pork tips sandwich. Get the corn casserole (fantastic). Get the pulled pork. Don’t get the slaw (missing something -we tried salting it, but it didn’t help). Should’ve gotten the Brunswick stew instead (looked yummy). Great service, good prices

The locals were celebrating their Annual Gold Rush Festivities. The restaurant had set up a pretty process on fencing off their outside area at the front to take orders for outside and inside seating. There were hundreds of people filling the streets and shops. Both...More

This casual dining experience, located right off the main square in Dahloneda. The crowded little restaurant verified just how good it was. Nothing fancy. Seating inside or outside. The servers were cordial, informative and friendly. The taste was out of this world. We liked it...More
