This is the best barbeque we have ever eaten! We had the pulled pork, green beans. Took back to our room to feast! They don't hide the pork with sauce. The flavor is only from the smoking. No sauce is really needed. Please don't pass...More

Disappointed after reading some good reviews but while the service was satisfactory unfortunately the food was not. Cole slaw tasted like store bought, baked beans were overcooked to the point of brown mush, cornbread was dry, cold and lacked flavor, green beans were greasy. BBQ...More

Always a stop for us when visiting Blowing Rock, Woodlands always has dependable food. Super fast service. Only comment this time is that the music started almost 630pm so didnt get a chance to enjoy this trip.

We’ve been stopping here for many years, and always look forward to it. This time around the food quality was just average but the service made up for that. This is basic southern BBQ in a family atmosphere, worth trying!

We have eaten here at least 50 times. We always get the "Pig Out" which is enough for two hungry men to get filled. From chopped pork to babyback ribs to the Huge Burritolota, the food is out of this world. Nobody does BBQ this...More

Nothing different about american barbecue, but is a very good place to stay on this small city. The service was a little slow, but we had a very nice time. My girl did a picture, and is there for everyone. We love and will return...More
