Servers very pleasant and helpful in making selection. All 4 of us had the pok platter and differnt sides. Green beans, baked beans, potato salad, slaw and hush puppies were all very good.

We arrived late and enjoyed the pork plate, as well as, a the pork rib plate. The service was great although not too friendly. I would certainly return again.

Decent coleslaw and green beans. Pulled chicken was good but a bit dry. Maybe if I had noticed the bottle of extra sauce on the table that might have helped. 😜 Iced tea was great!

I've eaten here a few time...always to go though. The take out is well packaged and has always been pretty tasty. I have always felt satisfied with my experience here. Can't say how clean the inside is as I have never been inside......but I can say this, if you are at a surrounding business, you can smell the BBQ and... More

Delicious and reasonably priced food. The barbecued filled baked potatos are delicious, and a good alternative to hamburgers. Never too crowded, and good service.

Quick supper in the drive thru. Quick easy and food is good. You can either sit in or take out also. Highly recommend the smoked wings and large potato.

Fast food bbq. Nothing more than Micky Ds only its BBQ. Fries are ok. Hush puppy's so so. Cole slaw was good. Just another fast food choice. Try to find an independent meat and 3 instead

On my way to Nashville from Pigeon Forge I was looking for a BBQ place close to the I 40. Saw the sign, best decision of the day. Cheap and good. Try the mild sauce. Awesomeness. Look at my pics. See if you can spot the differences...
