Tomlin's has the best BBQ anywhere, ever. We've had them cater 2 parties and everyone loved the food.

“The best BBQ you're going to find anywhere - Stop at the little red shed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Truly some of the best BBQ you will find anywhere.

The Tomlinson's have catered for years and brought their food to the public via the little red shed in the Osage market parking lot. I stop there almost every weekend we're in the mountains to pick up their pulled pork sandwiches. Friends visiting from Atlanta and other locales rave about the food too. It's perfect to take on a picnic, take out on the lake, or take home to eat. Their cobbler is really good too. Everything homemade (or smoked) and absolutely delicious.

A few years back they were on of 5 finalists in a contest by Regis and Kelly. Great BBQ at a great price. Limited hours. Stop by if you see they are open.

“Just good cooking!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

While you buying vegetables at Osage Farms stop by Tomlin's BBQ and get a sandwich or try some of the wonderful side dishes and desserts. They also do catering and have great macaroni and cheese just like your grandmother use to make with real cheese browned to perfection. They have large portions so you want go hungry. Your mouth and stomach will be so happy.

“Great BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Really good BBQ. Working from a small trailer they dish out BBQ Ribs and sandwiches, along with other fine food. They are usually only open weekends and holidays. Seating is picnic tables. They are next door to the best farm stand in Rabun County, Osage Farms.

“love it when you stumble on a treasure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

every now and then you quiet accidentally stumble onto a hidden gem that you know will become a new destination for you. This little barbeque stand just happen to be caling to us as we were picking up some vegtables to take back to Florida with us. My husband got the sunday special of ribs with 2 sides and i got the brisket plate..the brisket was unlike any i have ever had, tender and seasoned perfectly and very generous in portion. My sides of cornbread salad and black eye pea salad were sp good I got back in the car and looked up recipes. The ribs were smoked to perfection and fall off the bone tender. I can honestly say my husband I agree we have never had better! Just sad to see today is October 27 and they will not be back until May...oh well it gives us something to look forward to...by the way we shared a bread pudding still talking about that too
