We stopped here for lunch on a long drive from Charlotte to Nashville, and we were so glad we did! Hi quality ribs and etc for a great price in a fun atmosphere. Place your order and pay at the counter, and they bring your food to the table. Everyone was super friendly. Not fancy- but great!

This is a good stop along interstate 40. We tried the sliders and you get one of each. Pork, brisket and chicken. While I did not like the chicken, my husband said his was okay. The pork and brisket were very good and we liked the sides we picked as well. The walls are covered with a variety of hats,... More

Sandwich piled high with perfectly smoked pulled pork! Barbecue slider trio had delicious and not fatty chopped brisket, pulled pork, and smoked chicken. Chicken was a little dry, mostly because it appeared to be all white meat. Even better than the barbecue was the thick cut homemade chips, fried perfectly & delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant.

I ordered a full rack of ribs shared between 2 people and enjoyed them thoroughly. Ribs were tender and the sauce tasty. The French fries were crispy as I requested. Good job!

A buddy and me are in town for a race and ended up @ Phil's BBQ pit for lunch. It's 6:45 pm and I'll probably skip dinner tonight because I'm still full from all of the great BBQ that I ate. For $21 I had the 3 meat combo plate (chopped pork, chopped brisket, and sliced brisket) with 2 sides... More

The environment at Phil's was interesting, and the food was delicious. There was a warm ambience inside the restaurant that cold blustery day, and although it was around 2:00 in the afternoon, a steady stream of hungry people continued to stop in. There were dozens, maybe hundreds, of hats on the ceiling and license plates stapled along the walls. Everything... More

Every time we went to go to Phil's, they were out of BBQ, so it became a mission! It's very casual and fun. You go up and order and they bring it out to you. There are a variety of sauces to put on your food. My son and husband love it there, and hit it every time we go... More
