Well, no kidding. I remember getting BBQ sandwiches here over 30 years ago and longer. Everyone in the family likes it. Whenever I go back there, it is one of the first places I hit. This is not your traditional go in, sit down, and...More

Hands down the best BBQ around (except maybe Mcewen's annual Irish Picnic). The prices are reasonable and food delicious. The only down side is the short window they're open.

Good barbecue and one of the few places where they don't put a bunch of sweet mess on the sandwich and call it sauce. Real old fashion Barbecue.

Been eating here since Fossie ran the little BBQ place. Many Many years and it is the best BBQ in the USA. It is a drive up order place and now ran by Fossie's descendants. Best food and best people.

Small, drive thru with 2 picnic tables (no indoor dining area). Fun and funky little BBQ place. I had the pulled pork plate. True Tennessee 'que.

No doubt this is the best bbq in dickson, but it's really difficult to catch open. By time I get home from work its closed already. Great food, terrible hours.

I have been eating here since I was little (40 years) and there is no other like it. If you come through Dickson and do not stop , you should be arrested!
