Wolf Creek Canyon BBQ is now closed. I thought it was ok when it was open and was surprised when I saw it was closed. I assume it has to do with the location...you can't see it from the main road. It is now called Smokehouse Country Grill.

Now called "The Smokehouse Country Grill." Same owners apparently. Didn't like under old name, no improvement with new name. They were out of barbecue chicken and cornbread at lunch on a Saturday at 1:00, or they say they don't have those items on Saturday! Wasn't because they were so busy! I had bbq sampler; the brisket was okay I guess,... More

Wolf Creek Canyon BBQ is by far the best around in these parts. I recently took a couple from Memphis there and they were amazed. They said the Fried green Tomatoes and the Ribs were the best they had ever had.

The staff concentrate on bar service over food service and they are getting less customers there for the food. Our food tonight taste as if were made yesterday and... More
