After the Jack Daniel's tour, we need to get some lunch. This place is perfect. It is a block off of the main square. The pulled pork sandwich 'on crack' is moist and perfect. The ribs were good too. Fresh out of the smoker.

Stopped by before the Jack Daniel's distillery tour. Great food and service for a fair price I got the crack grilled cheese and pork. My husband got the smoked sausage. We both enjoyed our meals very much.

Excellent food, priced fair, closed at 6 though, real barbecue, very friendly, met the owner. Would be nice to have a beer though, not his fault.

This is an easy walk from the Jack Daniel's distillery, and well worth the stop. Very casual, inexpensive. Their grilled "crack" cheese is to die for! Be advised, no alcohol (a cold beer would have been perfect!). 😊

I had been eating out in Tennessee for 45 days, and this place was simply the best tasting food I had. Amazing and simple.

Pulled pork, beans and potato salad were all great. Owner stopped by our table couples times which was nice. Quirky atmosphere which makes it all the better. No chain food here!

Ribs are awesome!!! Grilled cheese on crack!!! Potato salad is really good, not a huge fan of the slaw. I recommend this place. Enjoy!!!

We stopped for lunch after a great tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery. I had the pulled pork plate and it was excellent. Older establishment with lots of atmosphere. I would recommend this highly.

The food was amazing, however the poor employees seemed understaffed. They were running around working their butts off, but we had to be patient and wait. Several people around us were commenting, but they were working as has as they could keep up. Would go...More

Was in Tennessee for a few days and finally found it in Lynchburg the best BBQ!!! The owner Chuck was there and set right down with us and had a wonderful conversation. The food was excellent hope to get back there again!!!

Sorry I don't know the answer but they should.
Do you take reservations (say for a group of 9 or possibly a few more)? This will be for Sat. May 23, 2015 at approx. 1:00 p.m.

Chuck does not require reservations but you can call ahead and tell them how many and what time you will be there. If you have to wait it will be well worth it!
