Haywood Smokehouse catered our wedding in March 2019. They were EXCELLENT! My husband and I had gone on many dates to Haywood Smokehouse while dating and wanted to incorporate them in our wedding day. Since we had family and friends traveling from all over the country, we wanted them to experience the BEST of NC BBQ--and that's exactly what we got! Rita helped coordinate the catering for the day and it ran perfectly smooth! There was plenty of delicious food! We couldn't recommend Haywood Smokehouse more--as a great restaurant AND as an amazing catering option! More...

Haywood Smokehouse has been superb from the day it opened its doors. Their barbecue is legit! The ribs are meaty and not fatty - especially for St. Louis style ribs. The pulled pork is also moist and succulent. However, don't skip the brisket...close your eyes and you just might think you are in Texas. Yeah, it's that good. Also be sure to ask for any current special sauces they have (sometimes they have season BBQ sauces like strawberry or blueberry infused varieties!). The staff have always been friendly and warm - just like the food they serve! More...

Best meal of barbecue I've ever had in my life, hands down. and that's saying a lot because I live in Alabama and there's plenty of good barbecue around. Can't say enough great things about this place. Courtney was our server and she was excellent. Excellent! I had the brisket, burnt end baked beans, fries and everything was great. if you've never been here, do yourself a favor and go. You'll have an excellent meal and you certainly won't leave hungry.

The food and service was amazing! Meka was a great waitress and made sure we had an enjoyable lunch. The sweet potatoes fries and baked beans had so much flavor! The brisket, ribs, and chicken were all very flavorful and tender. Even the toast was toasted to perfection. We really enjoyed the mustard based sauces and the red sauce that was already on the table. We will definitely stop by here on our next visit to Cherokee! More...

Stopped by while visiting Asheville with some friends. First off, you can smell the delicious charred bbq blocks away... making you just the right amount of hungry to eat their family sized portion meals. I ordered the ribs and the brisket and I’m still dreaming about how good the brisket was. I recommend you stop and I’ve them a try if you’re in the area. I hope I get to visit again soon because I would stop in and try more off their menu! More...

Popular place, and we tasted why! We visited within 1 hour of closing on a Saturday, and the pork sandwich and brisket not only looked phenomenal but tasted the same. Shredded pork was fresh and actually fluffy, sauces were great too with a few awesome "out of the box" choices, and the brisket sooo tender and visually appealing! Also have available banana pudding and chocolate bourbon pecan pie! Worth it to venture off the freeway! Thanks! More...

We were happy to find this sweet little gem on our way home from a camping trip. If you're lucky enough to get Kari as a server, she'll tell you all about their sauce choices and help you select the best sides for your dinner. I chose smoked sausage with apple - jalapeno sauce. The baked beans were full of flavor and should not be missed. Their fries were twice fried and delish!!! There was quite a wait for the food, but I didn't let that reduce the rating.... mainly because the food and the service was worth the wait! More...

Best brisket I’ve ever tasted in North Carolina. Eight of us came here to celebrate a friend soon to be married, made no mention of it to the staff, and somehow wound up gifted an entire rack of ribs from the kindness of their hearts. Incredible, unexpected hospitality and superlative meats. That’s a win! More...

Pretty good BBQ restaurant! A bit annoyed that the full party had to be present before being seated, but I guess they're super busy and can't afford giving up the tables. Good service, and the food itself excellent. The peppers served with my meal was a bit tasteless, but other than that excellent! They were also super nice and didn't rush us out of there even though we stayed quite a bit past the closing time. More...

Would have given this a five of five stars but somehow my order got lost and I waited about 30 minutes from the time I place my order for take out to actually walking out of the restaurant! In their defense they did offer a free dessert so I took home a pre call bird that I did not pay for it! The food was excellent the ribs was fall-off-the-bone tender and flavorful as well as their brisket was moist tender and a lot of flavor will be eating here again for sure More...

Probably the best BBQ I've ever had. I make it a point to plan my trip to time it that I'm driving by during their hours of operation, just so I can eat here. I live in Florida, and I would probably just drive up there to eat some of their BBQ. Sides are great, brisket is great, desserts are great too. More...

We tried coming here one night while on vacation and they were closing early for a private event. We ordered food to go and several big items were left off. (Like large sides and a big order of meat.) That was quite the bummer because we were staying in a rental home like 20 minutes up a mountain. We called the restaurant and let them know and they said they would make it right if we came back. We did come back the next night and they refunded our food. So they didn't go, like, crazy making it up to us but it was fine. The guy who forgot the items was apologetic.But they did make it up to us with how good their barbeque was. Oh my. Everything was amazing. It's exactly what you want when you're on a mountain vacation. It's a cute restaurant, too. We would definitely go back. More...

For 20 years a small smokehouse in Texas has held my #1 spot for the best tasting beef brisket- UNTIL TODAY. The Haywood Smokehouse tops any beef brisket that I have eaten. The bark was perfectly smoked and the tender, juicy, meat melted in my mouth. The homemade peach cobbler was delicious. We will be making the 2 hour trip back in the future just to eat here. More...

Had lunch with the family today and had the special rib sandwich with coleslaw on top. Also had brisket and andouille sausage. I would have to say that this is the best barbecue place I have ever been to and that includes Louisiana, Tennessee, South Carolina and even some places in North Carolina. The brisket was the most tender I've ever had. Now let's talk about the sauces. I think they said somewhere around fifteen different sauces to choose from and all of them are very good. My personal favorite was Georgia Fire and my wife's was the Chipotle Ranch. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for good barbecue. My next travels back in the Maggie valley area will definitely include the Haywood Smokehouse. More...

29 January 2019

The food is great, the sauces are good, and service was great too.Husband had a half-slab came right off the bone perfectly, baked beans and potato salad were good. 11 yr old son had chicken quesadilla and said they were delicious. 5 year old daughter had the kids chopped chicken and mac & cheese, she said they were good (she is a picky eater-i tried the mac & cheese and it was really good)I had the chopped pork platter which was good, the coleslaw (delicious - not a super creamy one - it tasted fresh!) And the side of the day: sweet potato waffle fries (a little over salted but otherwise good).The sauces - we tried both Carolina styles, I preferred the sweeter/thicker one. The non-sweet one is really watery as it is primarily vinegar. The SOB had fantastic flavor AND of course bite (habanero & jalepeno). Cajun ranch was great and good paired with the quesadillas (or to help cool down the SOB lol). It wasnt super spicy. The one they keep on the table is their sweet red, a ketchup based bbq sauce. It is a good basic, balanced between ketchup & bbq status si not overly tomato-y.I actually mixed the sweet red with the sweeter Carolina sauce because I really liked the Carolina one but it was a rather runny sauce. The two together was a good mix.Service - holy.cow.our waitress was fast. They were busy, but we only had like a 3 minute wait to seat our party of 4. Our waitress was quick to get us drinks, get in our order, and got the food out to us as soon as it was ready. I think we sat down and had our drinks and food within 10 minutes. Or it felt that way at least.The dining area is a little close quarters, but didnt feel claustrophobic. We also really enjoyed the music (mostly 90s country). This place is easy to miss driving by if you're not looking for the sign. The parking is all in the back and the building itself looks like a red house sitting close to the road. There is a black sign out front with white lettering. Theres also a nice outdoor patio for dining too. Despite the rain there were a couple people put there. More...

I come to WNC on vacation every year. It wasn't until tonight that I found this place. This is by far, the best BBQ I've ever had. (And I love BBQ!) We tried the chopped pork, beef brisket, and chicken. All were great. I'd have to say the brisket and pork were my favorites. Forget eating anywhere else on this trip. I'm coming back here!!! I'll add photos on my next stop in here. I was too busy eating to remember to take them! More...

Fantastic BBQ. My party tried the Brunswick Stew, Ribs, Chopped Pork, Smoked Turkey, Mac & Cheese, collard greens, french fries, and slaw. Everything was great! I don't think anyone left a bite on their plate - err, tray. Super cool atmosphere, swamped with locals and travelers alike by 5p, and super friendly and polite staff!

After a long day on our first trip to the max patch...this place was amazing. The food was spot on and the service was great. The only negative I have...if your not a tremendous bbq fan, the smoke smell could overwhelm some people inside the restaurant. Speaking for the outside eating area, everything seemed clean and the decorations were great. Overall I would give 5 stars and we would drive from knoxville Tn to go back anytime. More...

29 September 2018

Have been to this location and the Dillsboro many times and never been disappointed. The flavors and presentation both go unmatched in this area. On occasion some items have been a little heavy on the salt but still good. The andouille sausage and brisket are two of my favorites. There are multiple choices for sauces for all preferences while the jalapeño apple and Georgia fire are my favorites. Sandwich choices are also great as well as the quesadillas. Sides are delicious and I hate that the Waynesville location doesn’t have the fireside potatoes. Deserts are tasty but by far the best is bourbon chocolate pecan pie. Waitstaff is always helpful in answering questions and quick to refill drinks. Food never takes long to get out even in the busiest of times. If you’re local or just passing through be sure to stop by grab a three meat entree and some cobbler or pie you won’t be disappointed. The prices are bit high if you’re on a budget but don’t worry the portions and flavors are well worth it. Sauces are available to buy in pint size as are the meats by the pound. They also cater are very reasonable rates so don’t miss out!! More...

The restaurant looks like someone's house from the street. Parking out back. Had some of the best barbecue ever. Despite being in NC, I actually preferred the beef brisket over the pulled pork. But the ribs and sides were all awesome. They have nine different flavors of barbecue sauce. The spicy mustard sauce (which generally a SC thing) was a personal favorite. More...

This was the best barbecue I've had in a long time and maybe forever. And I've have some pretty good stuff over the years, but this was honestly way up there.We both ordered a two meat platter with chopped pork and brisket, which the waitress told us that's what they do best. Both meats were amazingly tender, juicy and flavorful.The secret is that they use cuts of meat that are nicely marbled with fat, and cook them slowly for a very long time. The brisket even had a nice thin top layer of fat that was both crispy and juicy and incredibly addictive. Sorry if you are looking for lean and dry barbecue meat this is probably not the place for you. But if you are a true connoisseur, you will agree with me that it is the fat that makes the meat juicy and yummy...We tried 4 different sauces (they will let you try as many as you want if you don't already have a favorite, and they leave the bottles at your table which is awesome). All were good, our favorite was probably the Georgia fire but that's a matter of personal taste. They have a sauce for everyone, from mild to super hot, from sweet to unsweetened...The platter comes with two sides. The collard greens were very good, the coleslaw was the only thing that was sub-par, but we were both so thrilled with the meat and sauces that we'll gladly forgive the coleslaw and come back next time the barbecue craving kicks in...

The baked beans have burnt ends in them, the collards are cooked with pork, the brisket is melt-in-your mouth, the ribs are meaty, the sauces are delicious - - and the potato salad is a thing you can order if you don't enjoy living life to the fullest.They sell the meat by the pound, and you can even take home dessert. Protip: the banana pudding is what you should order. More...
