While it's not a great place to dine in, it is more of a picnic style but indoors, the food can't be beat. Pulled pork is always tender and moist, sauce served on the side. All of the sides that we've ordered from the baked beans and slaw, to white beans and steak fries, and potato salad have been right... More

We ate here the first time and ordered two family packs. The pulled pork is wonderful!!! Baked beans, excellent. Cole slaw crisp and delicious. The people were very friendly. Our meals were packaged perfectly to make the trip home. The mild sauce complimented the meat. Fresh buns finished this off. Great people and great food. GREAT JOB!!!!!

Visiting friends who had picked up a great meal for us. The BBQ was wonderfully smoked. Sides included delicious beans that had chunks of green pepper in them. The slaw was fantastic. Had a nice biting tang to it and was great on top of the pulled pork on the sandwich.

Dry. Tough. Cold. Hard to get in and out of. People nice enough but seemed like they had no clue what they were doing. More than a but slow, too, and though not expensive, not that cheap either. Forget it and go to Burger King.

Checking out BBQ throughout the USA is one of my hobbies. Shuford's Smokehouse made my day. The pork sandwich with cole slaw was so good that I went back and tried the beef sandwich. The cole slaw, BBQ sauce, and Brunswick stew are wonderful. The banana pudding is delicious and better than at many better known BBQ joints. The vintage... More

Our family ordered take-out from Shuford's the first night of our vacation. While it doesn't look like much on the outside, don't judge this book by its cover! The pork, chicken, and beef brisket were all absolutely amazing and the sauces, especially the mild, were tremendous. All sides we ordered (cole slaw, baked beans, crinkle fries, etc.) were also great.... More

Shuford's offers tasty barbecue, even for this visitor who isn't a big barbecue fan. When we visit our Signal Mountain family, it's our " go-to" place for convenient, reasonably priced takeout.

This place delivers consistently good food. The kids just cannot get enough of the okra, and I am a big fan of the slaw. Of course, the barbecue is excellent. Jeff smoked and delivered a suckling pig for a party I set as a surprise for my wife. What a hit! I ordered extra thinking the pig may not be... More

Stand inside for just a few minutes, and you quickly realize that this place is something special. There are no strangers that eat here. Seemingly every patron is a regular, and even newcomers are treated just that way. It's more than smoked meats in here, it's a bustling hub of friends and family. Shuford's Smokehouse takes the classic barbecue joint and mixes in a heaping helping of southern hospitality, and the food? The food's good, you can bet on that.
