Fun environment, family friendly. Our meal was excellent. Brisket was fork tender and pulled pork very moist. Multiple sides to choose, Mac & Cheese was delicious. Staff were all very pleasant. This location is a return restaurant.

Guys. This place was a simple blast. The food was great and beyond that, the dessert menu was vast and HOMEMADE. We ordered the peach cobbler (w/ ice cream, of course) and my husband thought it was in the top two he's ever had in...his life. The atmosphere was so fantastic too. Right on the money. Old country music playing in the background. It was all-around awesome - and I'm pretty sure I said that at least five times while there. Our baby loved it too!More

Wife and I stopped in while RVing nearby. Had their brisket before in another location so had to stop in. This time we had the burnt ends brisket platter which was excellent. Definitely recommend and the collared greens were also delicious.

We road the Great Smoky mountain train from Bryson to Dillsboro and found the best BBQ ever. The restaurant was a full house, quick, friendly service. they had fresh cooked Collard greens, backed beans. The Smoked meats were fantastic with the best brisket ever. We...can't wait to go backMore

What a fabulous find in the quaint little town of Dillsboro!!! We enjoyed this restaurant on a Thursday night and we had about a 30 minute wait. I think that was more about a couple of larger sized parties. Once we were sat our amazing...food server, Kyra met us right away and took our drink order. We ordered and I was amazed at how fast the food came out! And it was flipping delicious!! We were a party of 4 and enjoyed everything from brisket, ribs, and pork. The beans are amazing as is the coleslaw! Kyra was wonderful about answering our questions and making perfect suggestions! I'm not quite sure if the food or Kyra's fun, laughter filled, service was better! Do yourself a favor and stop by for some really great food... oh and the prices were not bad either!More

Fantastic food and Breyer service! Kyra took care of us and our experience was fantastic! We had an accident at food delivery, my daughter spilled her water on my fries. They replaced them instantly. Thank you! We will be back!

Phenomenal food and service by Aaron. He made our experience so good that we dined there twice on our vacation! The mac n’ cheese, chopped bbq, and pecan pie are delicious! I’d give this place ten stars if I could!

Still the same owners here. We have taken the Campfire tater's off the menu and added fries by popular request. But you can still order them and my staff will be more than happy to make them for you as they do all... More
