The food was delicious, the staff was friendly and the service great! They have Cheerwine and crushed ice, for true North Carolinians. A wonderful end to a day spent hiking Amicalola Falls. We'll definitely be back!

The best!! I travel a lot and they have the best BBQ and Brunswick Stew I have tasted. I travel 4 states around me and love BBQ. Their Sauce selection is excellent (they have 3) but the Brunswick Stew is also to mouth watering!!!! BEST!

Excellent BBQ and great side items This location is not a full service restaurant. I highly recommend the pork plate with sides

Had a nice Barbeque lunch. Good food, good service. Two lunches cost close to $25 which I thought was a little steep.

......but the prices are high for the portions. The set up is crowded and paying $24 for two people to eat a sandwich, fries, and a drink off styrofoam trays and plastic utensils is ridiculous. I would guess they will be in trouble if another barbeque place opens in the area.

The barbecue here is pretty good. Not the best but still really good. I have eaten here several times and will go back again for barbecue.

Thank Michael K
