4 out of 5 stars. As a tap House they have a draft for everyone. Servers are great and the food is hot. If you like a dry rub BBQ then this is the place to go. Menus has a variety of choices.

The food here is always good and the staff is very attentive.... definitely worth the price (which isn't bad really)! I would certainly suggest giving it a try!

This popular spot specializes in barbecue but has a decent variety. I had brisket and it was excellent -- tender, juicy, nicely spiced. Side dishes were average, though the corn bread was better than most. Also, the beer selection was good and the prices, overall were modest. My issue with the ambience was the corny Xmas music being played loudly.... More

Thanks for the review Don...sorry you didn't care for the music...not to be too cliche but "tis the season!" Don't worry--we'll be back to a healthy mix of contemporary, blues, and classic rock soon. Thanks again! More

My husband and I stopped in while Christmas shopping last week and were very impressed. Our server was very quick, friendly, and knowledgeable, our food was delivered quickly, was piping hot and super scrumptious. Oversized portions gave us quite a doggie bag! The prices are pretty reasonable, and we took advantage of their holiday gift card promotion as well. We... More

I recently stayed in Johnson City and based off reviews on here and yelp I decided to give Food & Fire a shot. What I will say is that the inside has a nice bar and the staff is very polite and on top of things. We had dinner on a Saturday night and the place was pretty packed. We... More

Pass this eatery numerous times and this is the first time we have stopped. We started with the gator bite taco app and they were delicious for our party of 4. We tried gator many years ago on a trip to Seattle so we were excited when we saw this on the menu. The overall menu is loaded with many... More

The Food and Fire is near the Hampton Inn and a few other hotels. It has a good selection of cold craft beers ($6-$7), the brisket was very good, the pull pork fine and the free corn bread tasty. What's wrong with the place you ask? The side dishes. The most unappealing potato salad I have ever seen, the red... More

Ate there last night for dinner for first time while visiting family in the area. Had a Taster (ribs and brisket) which was good but for the price ($17) portion seemed small to me. Would go back given the lack of dining options in the area. Service was very good. We had Steven. Friendly and knowledgeable of menu.

They have a wall of craft brews of about 30 titles and they serve authentic BBQ that is hard to beat anywhere. You can get a two, three, four or five meat platter with sides. I recommend the burnt ends and beans and the hand cut seasoned steak fries.
