This BBQ family joint is fantastic. There are BBQ restaurants everywhere, however this ones worth the drive. Being in a small town makes it even better. We drive down with our kids when we can. One hour drive one way. The ribs are fantastic. The potato salad is awesome. The nachos are great. The grilled cheese with pulled pork is... More

After the Jack Daniel's tour, we need to get some lunch. This place is perfect. It is a block off of the main square. The pulled pork sandwich 'on crack' is moist and perfect. The ribs were good too. Fresh out of the smoker.

Stopped by before the Jack Daniel's distillery tour. Great food and service for a fair price I got the crack grilled cheese and pork. My husband got the smoked sausage. We both enjoyed our meals very much.

Excellent food, priced fair, closed at 6 though, real barbecue, very friendly, met the owner. Would be nice to have a beer though, not his fault.

This is an easy walk from the Jack Daniel's distillery, and well worth the stop. Very casual, inexpensive. Their grilled "crack" cheese is to die for! Be advised, no alcohol (a cold beer would have been perfect!). 😊

I had been eating out in Tennessee for 45 days, and this place was simply the best tasting food I had. Amazing and simple.

Pulled pork, beans and potato salad were all great. Owner stopped by our table couples times which was nice. Quirky atmosphere which makes it all the better. No chain food here!

We stopped for lunch after a great tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery. I had the pulled pork plate and it was excellent. Older establishment with lots of atmosphere. I would recommend this highly.

The food was amazing, however the poor employees seemed understaffed. They were running around working their butts off, but we had to be patient and wait. Several people around us were commenting, but they were working as has as they could keep up. Would go back if we were in the area, but don't plan on being in a hurry.

Thank ginny148
