“Don’t waste your money!”

Reviewed 19 October 2018

Friendly people, but their actual bbq meat was just “okay.” The sides, however, they were awful. The tater tots were literally inedible. They looked and tasted like they had been sitting around for HOURS. They were greasy, soggy, and barely lukewarm. They went into the trash can. The corn on the cob was a soft, soggy, spongy frozen cobbette that was truly horrible. Iced tea was as weak as water. There really was not anything worth eating from this place. To serve sides like that to accompany their food was just shameful. And we spent $30 on food! Terrible waste of money.

Wow, I just experienced the absolute WORST tater tots I have ever had the displeasure of eating. Well, not really eating, as I couldn’t get past the first two and just threw the rest in the trash. For $10.75, I would expect to get a decent meal that would not include tots that looked and tasted like they had been prepared 12 hours ago, and ever since then had just been sitting around waiting to be passed off to some poor patron. Shame on you for actually serving those rubbery, barely lukewarm greasy tots instead of throwing them away. The corn on the cob was the usual frozen then heated soggy, tasteless stuff. The meat was decent, but was completely overshadowed by the horribleness of the side dishes. The coleslaw was overly sweet, as were the baked beans and the barbecue sauce. Ribs were just okay. If you like side dishes sweet enough to be mistaken for dessert, this is the place for you. Really people, for those prices you really should offer a decent meal. My forecast is these folks won’t be around too long selling truly awful meals.

Best bbq in the area, by far. Easy to find at Highway 136 & 157. Brisket melts in your mouth! Outstanding side dishes. Clean, affordable, plenty of parking. Out of the on Lookout Mountain but if you're looking for real deal bbq, this is the place.
