Absolutely the best BBQ we have tasted in many many travels. We had "The Hog" ($19.95) and split it between two people. It had ribs, wings, beef and pork bbq, baked beans, slaw and corn bread. We still took a good portion home. Cute and quaint atmosphere. My only suggestion would be to serve with real silverware. It was a bit difficult cutting and eating with plastic. Can't wait to return.

Pick the hardest thing to smoke and they do it right. Both my wife and I picked sliced brisket - no way to cover poor smoke work with sauce or chopping. It was great. The others at our table enjoyed their chopped pork. Fast friendly service. It's not fancy but really clean.

I ordered a chopped brisket sandwich and really enjoyed it. The meat was tender and flavorful, though it lacked the full smoky savoriness that I like. To be fair, however, few places nowadays make barbecue to that standard.

This laid back atmosphere and great food means this is the place you need to stop and eat while in Blowing Rock.

We had several choices along highway 321, and decided we wanted some BBQ. We were treated immediately, we were able to pick the table we wanted right by the window, and FOUR employees said "thank you" as we were leaving.

My wife ordered the smoked turkey plate with three sides for a whopping $8.50....she got what seemed like a pound of turkey and great sides. I had the slices brisket with the spicy cornbread, corn, green beans and baked beans. Plates went back empty when we were done.

The turkey was lean and great. Brisket was smoked perfectly with the right amount of tasty "bark" and along with a little spicy BBQ sauce, was tremendous.

Corn on the cob was smoked as well, at least it looked like to came from the grill and it was also very tasty.

Our server was a young girl who did a great job. She seemed like she was just chilling out, taking some orders, and serving some food (think Jeff Spicoli!) , she was very nice and explained the menu and told us they have live music every night.

Little things make a difference and this place has them all. You expect to get decent food and decent service , we received very good food and very good service. What made our day was the GENUINE "thanks yous" as we walked out after eating. These were not the typical fast food "have a nice day", you get see in their faces they enjoyed that we decided to eat at their restaurant today.

And finally, on the menu it is printed "this isn't a fast food joint so if you are in a hurry and there's a wait, maybe you should leave and try us again another time." Awesome! Our food came fast and we had time to eat and enjoy, I could see in the evening it could be crowded, but our waitress said she has never seen more than a 30 minute wait even when very busy.

We will be back, and you should too.

The BBQ here is tasty. Nice sized portions, and not very expensive. The establishment itself is cool. Really enjoyed the live band playing Appalachian music. I'd go back.
