“Good BBQ - drive-thru only for now”

Smoky Mountain Barbecue
Price range: US$5 - US$10
Cuisines: Barbecue
Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 August 2021

Due to being short staffed, the restaurant is currently only doing drive-thru; however, if you call ahead, you can drive around to the front and they'll bring your order out to you. When I arrived the line was out to the street so there was about a 25 minute wait for the food (Chicken BBQ plate (pulled chicken) + green beans + mac & cheese) which was really good. I used the $10 certificate from the Blue Ridge Brutal biking event so there was no additional charge.

The people working the drive thru were very nice. I thought the chicken was good, BBQ (IMO) was okay. Sweet potato casserole was excellent; mac n cheese was alright; very disappointed in the french fries; slaw was good.

Smoky Mountain is working to adapt to the new restrictions due to COVID. We’ve been by several times since the crisis began. I feel like the place has missed a great opportunity to focus on customer service and food quality. Add one more staff member to expedite orders? Trim the menu if can’t provide consistently good food. Don’t insult me with a side of sauce that has less than a tablespoon! The food is just ok and the service leaves a lot to be desired. Your business seems to be humming along but you could be doing so much better!!

I guess I should know better than to order seafood in the mountains, the flounder and shrimp were terrible. The sides were fine. Im glad I dont have to go here again.

Excellent!! No virus is slowing these folks down! The young lady that waited on us curb side was quick & efficient. If you have never tried vinegar sauce instead of tomato bbq, try it!!! It goes so well with the cole slaw & meat. The cost was very low compared to others in the area. We will be back.
