Right on the Winchester Square. We have tried T's BBQ several times. It is a hit or miss. The brisket was pretty dry. Ribs are fine. You still get the southern vibe and OK dinner.

I loved the food and atmosphere of this place. All kinds of antiques and interesting things were in the dining area - even the table had old newspaper clippings underneath the glass that you could read while you waited to be served. Lots of neat...More

Gotta give a shout out to the fantastic dinner my family enjoyed at John T's BBQ on the square in Winchester, TN. Some of the best dry-rub baby back ribs this Southern boy has ever eaten. Good sauce and sides but the highlight was the fall-off-the-bone ribs man!!! The restaurant needs to get added to Trip Advisor so more people know about it...on second thought, maybe I 'll keep it to myself.
