This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. The bar-b-que sandwich was big with plenty of meat. The fries were more like potato wedges, very good and plenty of them. If you like vinegar slaw you are in luck! Hard to find it but this place has it and my wife loved it. We will visit again soon!... More

It's been a year since we ate here last as we travel to this area for an annual family reunion. We wouldn't miss eating at this place at all. The BBQ is excellent, the servings are huge and the atmosphere is exactly what you'd expect for a great BBQ place. We had the pulled pork plate with coleslaw, beans and... More

I've seen why some would get upset about the wait but I'm here to tell you, it's not that bad. The food is AH-MAZE-ING! I had a biscuit sandwich and the other half had all kinds of food. Sausage, eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy and a side of fried potatoes. Those were just thick cut potatoe chips but dipped in... More

So, we discovered this gem about 13 years ago and we try to go as often as we can. It is a local Ringgold BBQ joint that is family owned and operated. I love their pulled pork plate with tater tots, Cole slaw, baked beans (usually different every time, they use previous day smoked meat) and two rolls. It is... More

The barbeque recipe used is a family one that goes back generations. I have enjoyed this delicious barbeque since the 1950's. Stop by you won't be disappointed!

I'm sorry but not sure what everyone is talking about. I almost got sick at the table. Couldn't tell what was wrong with pulled pork. It was gross! Over smokey and kerosene like taste. Seemed like good country folk. But on the top of my list for bad bbq😕 I walked out with my stomach turning and a bad taste... More

It has been a rough couple of days and we needed to be comforted with our favorite local BBQ place. We found this place when we moved up here 12 years ago. Locally owned, family run, waitresses know us and actually care. The food is fantastic! Last night was rib night, they only do them twice a week. Baked beans... More

Ranch is delish. Very fresh salad. Fries was pretty deep fried. Not much potatoes in it. Bbq pork was good as well. Baked beans not my type. Thanks Bailey's for a good visit!

Bailey's BBQ is a tradition for locals and a must for travelers. The BBQ is smoked to perfection. The salads are one of my favorites-the ranch dressing is the bomb! Breakfast is also served and very good.
