Our family stopped at this exit on a road trip. We decided to try this establishment. We were pleasantly surprised! We enjoyed the food and our server was quite attention and friendly. The brisket sandwich was delicious and my husband enjoyed the buffet.

The Smokehouse has a small, but hearty buffet of southern home style cooking. Their BBQ is decent, the cornbread is excellent!!! The fried green tomatoes were terrible, heavily breaded which dominated the flavor...couldn’t even tell there’s a tomato slice within. They don’t serve with a...More
