We like to sit at the bar to eat. They have plenty of TV's. The service at the bar is excellent - our favorite bartender is Travis. The food is always good and prices are reasonable especially if you have a $10 off coupon.

Very impressed with the brisket and chicken breast! The sides were varied enough for everyone's taste...wish they offered a side salad as one of the sides. Our server was good considering it was quite busy.

The BBQ is western Carolina style. They should be complicated for the Brunswick Stew. I would be satisfied having the stew as an entree instead of a side

Great food, atmosphere and drinks at great prices. They offer call ahead which is great because it does get crowded.

I was at a party where they served Smokey bones pulled pork and there was more then enough food. As for servers you can hire them through your local temp service.
