We arrived here on a sunny Friday afternoon and were treated to some of the best BBQ i ever had. Most of the family ordered the Pork Sunday which they loved. My daughter said it was the best meat she ever tasted. I had the brisket which was excellent. Our family highly recommends this spot

Picked up two pounds of brisket, two pounds of chicken, two pounds of pulled pork and a bucket of beans to feed 3 families. The chicken and pulled pork were good but the brisket was the best by far! Next time we will go straight for the brisket. If you get the chicken I would suggest you add some of... More

Always stop here on the way to Sunday river. Great brisket. Nice bark and fatty just the way it should be. Pulled pork is good. They only had the short end of ribs which had gotten burnt and dry. All and all a must stop when your coming or going from Sunday river. Get the brisket.

Some of the best smoked meats around. Price is reasonable and the variety is dense. They also smoke turkey and the next door store makes sandwiches.

We both tried the bbq pulled pork sandwiches and found them to be the best we've ever had . I highly recommend a scoop of their tasty coleslaw on top. The portions are impressive and service was great.. Definitely will return the next time in Bethel area.

We had the best beef brisket sandwich of our lives, from a converted camper with the smoker out back. Sat outdoors on the picnic tables and shared a $10 sandwich which was enough for the two of us. perfect smokey combination of crispy end and medium rare brisket. Came with cole slaw and a pickle. What a meal on a... More

After reading reviews we stopped by for dinner and felt it really missed the mark. We tried a variety of dishes and can say all were major disappointments. The ribs were dry and way overcooked, the sliced beef & shredded pork warranted only a few bites. I'd say we ate about 20% of what was purchased before we gave up... More

Great smoked BBQ beef brisket and all the extras are also good. Cornbread coleslaw. I also had the smoked pork with accompaniments. It was all very good but a bit overpriced I felt. Last year I had the Sunday special and it was exceptional.

We've eaten good BBQ in lots of different states so were disappointed when this didn't deliver. We ordered two plates with two meats each. The sausage and pork were pretty good but the chicken was dry and the brisket had the taste and texture of chuck toast. The BBQ sauce was ok; the cole slaw had a funny color and... More
