We were traveling to Murphy late on a Thursday night. They were getting ready to close but they stayed open for us and the food was great. The service was impeccable! Highly recommend.

Great place for excellent BBQ. Cool rustic atmosphere & great service. Some of the best smoked turkey & beef brisket that I've eaten. They also have a fried onion loaf that is a lot like a blooming onion.
