Some of the best smoked meats around. Price is reasonable and the variety is dense. They also smoke turkey and the next door store makes sandwiches.

We both tried the bbq pulled pork sandwiches and found them to be the best we've ever had . I highly recommend a scoop of their tasty coleslaw on top. The portions are impressive and service was great.. Definitely will return the next time in Bethel area.

The staff were a bit brisk with I and my husband..the brisket was dry as was the pulled pork. We will not be going back.

We had the best beef brisket sandwich of our lives, from a converted camper with the smoker out back. Sat outdoors on the picnic tables and shared a $10 sandwich which was enough for the two of us. perfect smokey combination of crispy end and medium rare brisket. Came with cole slaw and a pickle. What a meal on a... More

After reading reviews we stopped by for dinner and felt it really missed the mark. We tried a variety of dishes and can say all were major disappointments. The ribs were dry and way overcooked, the sliced beef & shredded pork warranted only a few bites. I'd say we ate about 20% of what was purchased before we gave up... More

Great smoked BBQ beef brisket and all the extras are also good. Cornbread coleslaw. I also had the smoked pork with accompaniments. It was all very good but a bit overpriced I felt. Last year I had the Sunday special and it was exceptional.

We've eaten good BBQ in lots of different states so were disappointed when this didn't deliver. We ordered two plates with two meats each. The sausage and pork were pretty good but the chicken was dry and the brisket had the taste and texture of chuck toast. The BBQ sauce was ok; the cole slaw had a funny color and... More

Stopped in on our annual leaf peeping expedition to the western mountains. Brisket - excellent, pulled pork sundae, out of this world wonderful with cornbread, slaw, smoked cashews, pulled pork all piled high. Could be some of the best smoked meat in Maine. The prices are extremely reasonable.

We had high hopes after reading the great reviews, and maybe it's because we showed up near the end of the day, but our food was really unenjoyable, so much so that we decided to scrap it and go somewhere else. We ordered the Texas Beef Brisket and some sausage with the cornbread, and it was all bland. The sauce... More

We've had smoked bbq everywhere, and this place not only delivers but is one of the very best...and we return year after year to this roadside fave. Their smoked brisket is moist and not to be rivaled, the ribs and smoked chicken are fantastic, pulled pork is great, even their beans are delicious. I live seven hours away and told... More
