Reviewed 22 June 2018

We recently had dinner here with our four other adults and a child. This is not a sit and be waited on restaurant. When you enter the door, you immediately place your order and they will then bring it out to you. The food was about average, based upon our previous BBQ meals. The French fries were very good. Serving were about average. The pulled pork had good taste, but had a lot of fat in it, which was very disappointing. the coleslaw, green beans and potato salad were all good. Overall, this is a very casual meal that was moderately priced. The restaurant itself could use a good cleaning, as the table and chairs were quite sticky. The helpers were very cordial and accommodating.

Off the beaten path in pigeon forge but well worth the visit. Loved the brisket and sausage we had. Boss sauce was very good too and is vinegar based without a ton of extra sugar added. Potato salad is awesome it’s like a loaded potato. Beans are good too. Can sit inside or out. Atmosphere is rustic and not a place for a romantic dinner. Counter is in the back so it’s confusing when you enter in the front of the building. They need to put up signs otherwise people are confused like we were. You order at the counter and they bring it to your table that is why they ask for a tip on the credit card machine. Serve fountain Pepsi which is nice. Place is air conditioned. Will return next time we are in the area.

I had the sausage lunch plate and my friend had the pulled pork sandwich. My sausage was about 6" of kielbasa cut into pieces (and not very hot) with a thick piece of bread that should of come toasted. Besides it was stale. All for $9.99. My friends Pulled Pork sandwich, which came on a stale bun, was average tasting.but skimpy for $10.99. The high light of our lunch was the coleslaw and our other side was a unusual potato salad that neither of us cared for. The BBQ sauces on the table were both good with the smoky labeled one being excellent.Overpriced BBQ food for below average food. We are locals and will NOT be back.

Very nice restaurant off the beaten path of the main Pigeon Forge strip. Food was very good and reasonably priced. The service was fast and friendly. Look forward to going back on our next visit to the area.

Decent BBQ but not blown away. Service was fast and people were friendly. We had the brisket, pork sandwich, and tried all 5 sides. Both meats on the dry side. Nothing special about the side dishes. Neither of the house bbq sauces were impressive. Disappointed because of the high ratings.
