We have lunched here several times on our way up to the mountains. The BBQ pork sandwiches are some of the best that we have ever had. I would definitely recommend it if you are in the area.

I've never eaten at the restaurant but have picked up "to go" several times. This is the best pulled barbecue pork in the area if you like it lean. The potato salad is excellent and the baked beans certainly worth a try. Staff are friendly enough though always busy.

The food was delicious, the staff was friendly and the service great! They have Cheerwine and crushed ice, for true North Carolinians. A wonderful end to a day spent hiking Amicalola Falls. We'll definitely be back!

The best!! I travel a lot and they have the best BBQ and Brunswick Stew I have tasted. I travel 4 states around me and love BBQ. Their Sauce selection is excellent (they have 3) but the Brunswick Stew is also to mouth watering!!!! BEST!
