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...
Wonderful food!!Staff is great
Great food,great atmosphere,great service
Good smoked pork, brisket, ribs, and chicken. Baked beans, mac & cheese, ect.
First time going there It was delicious. Can't wait to go back
Great barbecue and the best baked beans! Dining quarters is small though.
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...
They have the best brisket I have ever eaten
Absolutely the bbq in Haywood county awesome food and service.
Good variety of sauces
Absolutely awesome! Would go back in a heartbeat
BEST brisket sandwich have ever had anywhere! Melt in your mouth tender & piled high! Banana pudding so yummy too.
Best barbecue I've ever had - hands down!
Great food....much better than the majority of BBQ in Western NC
Awesome BBQ with a variety of specialty sauces (my fave part)- brisket and pork were both delicious. Our server Christina was awesome too!
Great service and great food!
John B. Thompson
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. More...
Great brisket and great service
Great food and service! Lots of good homemade bbq sauce options
Haywood Smoke House what can I say... always a great meal. The BBQ I'd amazing and the choice of sauces is fantastic.
Was travelling from Canada with my brother and parents, and suggested Haywood’s based on the reviews. We were not disappointed! Very good BBQ. The ribs and turkey were delicious, and if you get sides, the Mac and cheese and baked beans are to die for! More...
Great local BBQ.
Amazing food, our waitress was to impatient
We are from Austin, Texas and I can honestly say this is Texas style brisket. Kim was our server and was very friendly, polite and helpful. Great service and food. Would definately tell everyone visiting to try Haywood Smokehouse if your longing for Texas style brisket. More...
Great smoked barbecue. Best I've ever had in my life. Highly recommend Haywood Smokehouse.
Great food! Great customer service! Nice atmosphere.
Amazing food and good friendly service! If you leave hungry it's your own fault
One of our favorites. My husband and I always get the brisket quesidilla and split because it is a large portion. The outdoor patio is great when the weather is nice and is dog friendly!
Awesome food, great atmosphere and patio dining weather permitting..ask for Cortney
Oh my!! Do not hesitate to find this place to eat. Famtastic brisket, cole slaw, collar greens, sauces. Super super amazing. I loved it!!
excellent as usual.
Awesome food, great prices and friendly staff will surely be back
Good bbq a little over priced
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...
Amazing beef brisket
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...
The brisket is incredible. That's why you see an empty basket!
Excellent service. We took 1/2 slab of Ribs home. They were very thick with tender, smoked flavor meat! Will definitely try their menu eat in next time. Restaurant very clean & great outdoor eating area with umbrella covered tables. More...
Awesome place to eat!!
Excellent service, excellent food - really enjoyed the brisket and sweet potato fries. Also enjoyed the 1/2 slab of ribs, collard greens and coleslaw. Would go back there in a heartbeat. More...
My partner and I had a fabulous experience here. The meats and sauces are excellent, a cut above for sure. I will be returning often.Even the wait wasnt bad as tiny as the space if. If it hadnt of rained we may would have eaten outside. More...
My favorite bar b q place EVER
This place is a gem for BBQ! I'm in love with their turkey...I wonder if they are open for Thanksgiving, I'm in
Very good bbq. 2nd only to 12 Bones.my favorite. Great service. Big ribs.
Best BBQ and brisket outside of Austin !
One of the best eclectic BBQ restaurants I've ever enjoyed. Excellent brisket, ribs, and sausage. Staff were wonderful. Parking is difficult but worth it. So not miss!
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...
Friendly staff and atmosphere
Simply some of the best barbecue you'll ever eat.
One of the best bbq I’ve been to in a long time. Please go if you are in the area. You won’t be disappointed!
Flavors were on point! Best barbeque I've had hands down!
Yummy!! Love it
Amazing food and service!
Excellent! Try the Brisket Burger. Outstanding...
Food was amazing and SO FAST! Waitress was very speedy and on top of everything. Get the chocolate burbon pecan pie with ice cream- you will not regret it. Not a ton of seats (Dillsboro) but because the food is so fast tables move quickly. More...
First visit. Brisket was amazing! I'm talking best ever and I've been to a few bbq places in my time. Our waitresses was a trooper (I feel bad, I can't remember her name) . One of our group of four, was a real sourpuss. But the hubs and I will definitely be back for more brisket! More...
Great prices on CBD Oil.
Food was good. Presentation was a little odd to me, everything in an individual paper fry baskets on a cookie sheet. For the cost and considering how greasy the food is, you'd think you'd get a plate.
The only thing bad is the parking. The second best brisket I ever had.
Great service and great employees! You can't beat it definitely the place to go if you're in the area!
Awesome restaurant, very consistent. Great food, great service.
!!Best BBQ ever!! Worth the price would buy every day if could.
Excellent food and Service!
Awesome food and service. Eastern Carolina BBQ sauce was a touch of home.
The food is amazing, the brisket is the best I've had in years! Nothing in NC can compare! Good friendly staff and desserts are on point! Thanks!
Great food and great price
The very best people and BBQ in western North Carolina !!
The brisket is amazing! Very tender and juicy. Great sauces too and I'm surprised they aren't bottled and in stores. My favorite is the strawberry chipotle - perfect balance of sweet and heat.
Great food and plenty of sauce options, but I'd have to say the Banana pudding is some of the Best I've ever had; just like Grandma's!
Great food, great service. John went above & beyond to ensure we were happy with our experience there in spite of having to wait because of graduation crowd.
My Favorite BBQ hands down
The server brought us back 8 samples of sauces to sample on our meats and we ended up purchasing the "Japple" and hot mustard sauce to bring home! Great brisket and great service!
We absolutely loved this place! The food was great, a very large portion and tasted amazing! There were plenty of choices for the barbeque sauce. The restaurant itself is very cute and rustic. It had a great feel and the decor was very nice. Service was great! We are from IN and were really wanting top notch BBQ during our vacation...we found that here! More...
Really great food! Collard greens were amazing! Tender and tasty. Brisket was awesome! Beans were great. Texas toast was banging. Ribs were awesome! Bbq sauces were amazing! More...
BEST RIBS!!!!! NUFF SAID!
Good bbq. Try the collard greens!
Good food but everything was too salty. Smoked chicken had way too much rub on it. I was expecting home fries when i ordered French fries. The mac and cheese was great. The server was amazing! We will eat here again. More...
This place was so good. I can't wait to come back. Fast service and friendly staff.
Love this place, great food, amazing sauces, friendly service. Over all excellent establishment!
Great BBQ when in dillsboro came from Toronto. Love it here. Try everything!!!
Amazing ribs, pulled pork and brisket. The fries aren't home cut but still really flavorful. Mac and cheese was phenomenal. Pricing was not bad at all
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...
Good food, ribs and collards. Relaxed atmosphere, great service. Parking can be an issue.
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...
One of my top 3 favorite BBQ joints to visit. Fantastic tasting brisket (there are some of hunks of fat in it that turn me off but some people like that so I’m not singing them on that) there service is wonderful as well.
This was our first time eating here and the barbecue and ribs were amazing. We each tried a different side to share and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere is fun too. Next time we are in Dillsboro we will eat here again. More...
Good food and a good price
Amazing bbq, service was very fast. We drove 1.5 hours just to try it, not disappointed! A must stop if you love barbecue
The best BBQ, sides and desserts ❤️❤️❤️a “must” if you are anywhere near Dillsboro NC
Smell of smokin' meats greets you at the door and gets your appetite in good working order for the delicious food to follow. Pulled pork and ribs were great, as were the burnt-end beans and fresh green beans sides! We'll be back for sure. More...
This place is the reason I have a smoker today. Got some peach cobbler to go.
Frosty Lia Baez
Yum, yum, yum! Delicious BBQ food. The green beans were one of the best I've had. The cook them with bacon and chicken. They had 8 different types of sauce. The ribs were... heavenly. And their desserts are homemade. Can't wait to go back. 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...
Great service & a plethora of sauces to choose for everyone's taste buds. Staff is friendly, courteous & prompt. Delicious food.
BEST BBQ AND BRISKET thus far!!! Variety of sauces that keep it interesting! From sweet, to mustard, and spicy. They even incorporate fruit in some of their sauces! The one with strawberry was my FAV! More...
Great ribs and even better side dishes.
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...
The BEST bbq in Western North Carolina
Excellent! We were told there would be a 30 minute wait and got in in 15 minutes. Our waitress was great and the ribs were fantastic. We we're suprised at how much we for. We couldn't even finish all the food. We will definitely be going back when we come back to town next year. More...
The best barbecue I have ever had. Will come back for sure. Loved it.
Down Home Creations
We were visiting the casino an decided to try this place because of the reviews. Wow. It is amazing an definitely didn’t disappoint we will be coming back next time we go to the casino
Southern Belle Wife
Great food and great service. It can get pretty packed so be prepared to wait but that's a good thing. It means they're awesome!
Excellent...ribs...pork sandwich....pulled chicken sandwich. Loving the fries!!!!
Oh man, this place rocks. Best barbecue and sides. Nice rustic vibe.
Great BBQ and selection of sauces. The Brisket Quesadillas are amazing!
Anyone who says this place isnt good is an orc. Best food I have had in forever. 10 out of 10, would 10 out of 10 again if I could.
Delicious meat. Large portion. Great baked beans. Not good Mac and cheese though. Bland and Kraft like. There is actually such a thing as good Mac and it is so easy to make.
Cute place to have lunch or dinner
Always good moist tasty brisket. Great stew
Absolutely Delicious! Service was fantastic!
Always delicious and plenty of food. Always get the burnt end beans as a side. Prime rib on Saturday evening and special occasions after 5, pork bbq, beef brisket, and ribs are all items we've tried and loved!
Amazing food and amazing service!
Th best BIG MONEY CAN BUY
Brisket was great, just like Texas
The brisket is thick cut and awesome. They have a real interesting collection of sauces and I recommend trying a few different ones.
Wish I had ordered the barbecue pork. Think I would have rated it higher. I got turkey. The pulled pork looked delicious. Need to come back and get some. Rustic atmosphere in a small town which I love. Lots of barbecue sauces to choose from. 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 a wonderful meal the food was excellent service was even better. Our waitress was named Tasha she made us feel right at home thanks haywood smokehouse!!!
Great food and service. Variety of interesting sauces. Nice hidden gem for BBQ lovers.
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...
Ileana Van Overloop
This is by far the best bbq I've ever had. The service was excellent. I recommend it wholeheartedly!
Great food good price cozy atmosphere
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...
We come here every time we're in Waynesville. We've had many items on the menu and all if them are very good. Food comes out quickly and servers are very polite.
My favorite BBQ place in Haywood County. Anything you choose on the menu is delicious. Eat there at least once a week.
The wait staff and night manager gave stellar service and the BBQ was to die for
This place is awesome! Stop by and try it. The smoked turkey was my favorite.
The best barbecue in Waynesville, period; I have been many times, and have yet to find anything that was not truly delicious, not to mention the exceptional staff and unique atmosphere. Nothing short of excellent!
Really good BBQ and worth the drive in from Asheville for lunch.
Must try the S. O. B. sauce
Hot Dog Professor
Yes and more yes. Try the SOB sauce. I just had to get a pint to take home.
EVERYTHING was good. Ribs were fall off the bone as they're supposed to be.
One of my best east of the Mississippi.
Ribs and chicken are fantastic. Pork is also good. Many different sauces. Definitely a place for a repeat visit!
Great as always
The best smokehouse style BBQ I have ever tried. We will be back to Waynesville!
My favorite place for bbq! Strawberry chipotle sauce is a must try and pecan pie! Yummy
Excellent barbecue. The brisket is perfect.
Best brisket ever.
This place has the best Brisket that I have ever put in my mouth. I highly recommend this place.
Excellent food and service!
Everthing was Excellent!!
Excellent food and service.
Great food. Friendly people. Different barbecus sauces for different tastes. Some moderately priced food. Some more expensive.
Great food, nice atmosphere
Delicious smoked brisket!
Went for a late lunch, food came fast and service was friendly. Ribs were easily the best we had in years, didn't even need sauce. Chopped chicken was a little on the dry side but everything was tasty and fresh. More...
So good. Service is great, food is amazing! We always stop here when we are in town!
Great BBQ great service
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...
Absolutely the best brisket i have ever had. If in the area you have to reward yourself with a meal here.
Really good Brisket.
Excellent! Love the environment. Super hip! Will definitely come back when we are in the area.
Amazing brisket and the Brunswick stew is a must have.
Fantastic ribs and everything else! Everything is great, I love the Strawberry Chipotle BBQ sauce, great mix of sweet and hot. If you love BBQ you will not be disappointed. They are busy, so be prepared for a short wait. More...
great food and a great place!
Very good food and quick service less than 15 minutes
Food rocks! Brisket is A+ bbq pork is best I have ever eaten! Sausage good and spicy! Sauces are numerous and great flavor! Lots of parking! We get to go once a week! Always friendly!! Recommended!! 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! It was such a great experience I bought a T-Shirt! I highly recommend! More...
Just go. Seriously.
excellent brisket and turkey. sides were spot on and the portions were generous.
This place has the best bbq! We stopped on our way back from Cherokee and went on the reviews. The reviews did not let us down. Ribs, chopped pork, potato salad and fries were so good. Service was great. We did have to wait but for something this good we'd do it again. More...
Highly recommend. Bbq was very very good! Mac and cheese was ok, probably pick another side next time. Baked beans, peach cobbler, pecan pie out of this world. Will definitely visit again next time we are in town! More...
The absolute best bbq I've ever had. The collards are fresh and taste delicious.
You know that feeling you get from listening to incredible music... the chills that engulf your body, just short of an org.... well you know. It was kinda like that! mmmm brisket! More...
Great food and service, I was not allThat crazy about the chicken. But everything else has awesome.
Always a great choice! Our go to place to impress out-of-town guests!
Great food great service
Good New Orleans style ribs, great sauce, friendly staff, priced right. Basic.
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...
Great food and people, will definitely be coming back!!
Great food and service.
Best brisket I've had since I moved from Texas 20 years ago. A must try..
Excellent barbecue. Excellent service. Wonderful desserts, if you still have room.
Some of the best barbecue we have ever had! Friendly staff and good service. Highly recommend anyone to try Haywood's, you will be very satisfied.
We had Haywood Smoke house cater an event we had in Waynesville in Oct. We could not have been happier with the quality of and service!! The food was AWESOME!!! We would highly recommend them!!! More...
Good barbecue, highly recommended.
Wilson Echevarria II
This place has some of the best brisket I've ever had. They have a 3 meat platter that is decently priced for the amount you get. The wait staff is very helpful and friendly. This is a great place to take family and friends. It's also good for a quick bite if you're traveling solo. I highly recommend stopping here at least once to try it out. More...
Best BBQ hands down between Waynesville and Asheville. Their mustard based Carolina BBQ sauce is the tastiest I've ever had. Great people, great service and love the home style feel of the establishment. More...
Good food, good service.
Very good brisket and pulled pork. Very unique sauces.
This place was awesome and the food was the best
Amazing & incredible!
Always a treat.
Awesome food, great service, and friendly atmosphere. The brisket and andiuole sausage is tops for me. Definitely one of my favorite spots to wat when staying in the area.
Love love love the brisket, consistently great bbq
Mark P Goodman
Fantastic Food & Excellent Service! I frequently dine at this restaurant with friends and family. The food is always fantastic and since Ms Kari has been our server, the service is as fantastic as the food. Best ribs in North Carolina!
Great , fine, worth it .
The only place in Western North Carolina that serves real St Louis dry rub ribs. The best.
Best place we ate on our entire trip to NC. Skip the lines at the trendy places in Asheville and get yourself here. Save room for dessert, the banana pudding and pecan pie are divine. Most of all the friendly service and laid back environment made us feel right at home. We ate here twice in one weekend! More...
We look forward to coming from Tampa to Haywood Barbecue each spring and fall. What a treat! It is some of the best barbecue around and don't forget to get some pecan pie to finish it off.
The best bbq joint around. Food and service are top notch. Good selection of local beers, too.
Good atmosphere, helpful and pleasant staff, portions are above average and the food was wonderful. I've been called a BBQ snob and will not hesitate to go back. Soon I hope.
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...
One of the best BBQ meals ever. I ordered the brisket burger. I go every year.
Very good food , good portions and great people ! Highly recommend them
This is an awesome place... You definitely get your monies worth. Highly recommend
Omg let me just say yesterday me and my Mom ate here and the food was awesome, waitress was very nice well tonight September 1st ordered the 2 meat combo ribs and brisket 2 sides fries cole slaw and let me just say it was all verrrrryyyy good. Thank you all. Local girl I will be back More...
Great food at reasonable prices. Their smoked meats are outstanding. Try a variety of their sauces.

Awesome meats. Awesome sauces
Best barbecue ever. My wife and I split a full rack of ribs.There was enough left to take home.
Loved it! Next time I am back this way, this will be where I eat!
Off the chain great place and great food
This afternoon we had a Brisket Platter, Naked Pork Sandwich with the Baked Beans, Nana's Slaw, Creamy Mac & Cheese, plus Sweet Tea, & great service. The only negative was NOT having the different BBQ Sauce bottles labeled. I'm not able to eat hot and or spicy with out dealing with it later . We will be returning but more cautious.... More...
Best brisket ever!
Sloppy Chicken! Yum!
Excellent BBQ ever!! And service.
Excellent food and service
Good food , good people , I'd suggest you try this place it's worth it!
Staff and the food. Awesome.
Good food! Friendly staff!
The best barbecue restaurant I ever been to. Southern feeling and atmosphere, everything on the menu is great. A very big plus for me is all of the sides on the menu are GREAT. Very helpful employees and fast service. I love eating here and it fills you up. Great deserts and lots of options for bbq sauces. I recommend to all wanting to try great Barbecue. More...
The very best ribs I've ever had. The brisket had a beautiful smoke ring and just melted in your mouth. All sauces are made on site (7 flavors I think) and they were all fantastic. They also have local beers in the bottle/ can. More...
Great Food!! Great atmosphere and great service.
Great bbq................................................................................................................................................................................................. More...
There is nothing negative about this restaurant! The atmosphere is amazing, service is always great, and the food is unique with some of the best flavors around.
Great food and service.
Really enjoyed our meal! The brisket was delicious and the burnt end baked beans our favorite side. Would love to come back again.
Small for it's reputation very excellent service and food
Been busy the two times I've been but reasonable service wait time. Different styles of barbeque and sauses offered.
Food was the bomb! Fast, friendly service too
Excellent food and atmosphere. Waitress was excellent!!!!
Had the Texas Melt Brisket sandwich and it was so good I never got to put any sauce on it! Had a taste of the baby backs and it was just as awesome. You will love it!
Service was fantastic and the bbq was very good. Prices were fare.
Very expensive bbq, but very good food overall. Very rustic atmosphere both on and off the plate. Get the collards, thank me with a like. Don't expect to spend less than 20 per person after tips. More...
The best smokehouse rest, love it!!
Nice atmoaphere, clean, great service. The prices are reasonable and the food was great
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...

Great pulled pork, potato salad, and cold slaw along with great service and good local beer.

Wow! Great smoked flavor in brisket and pork. Burnt end baked beans were some of the best I’ve ever eaten!
Best BBQ in WNC. If you're from OK or TX you won't believe the brisket.
Love this place, always try to visit when I'm in town. Great place, good food, good service. Must visit
Bbq was excellent! Chicken was not dry and had a great rub seasoning. Brisket was moist and had awesome flavor. Pulled pork was perfect and sauces took it to the next level. All sides were tasty and desert will knock you out...definitely a place to eat before you leave town More...
Ordered a 2 meat combo- brisket with chopped chicken, and mac&cheese and green beans. Loved every bite. Loved the bbq sauce selection. Great service. Fast food to table service. Inexpensive for the amount of food you get. Highly recommend trying it. More...
Phenomenal barbecue with possibly the best St Louis style ribs I've tasted, ever. Highly recommended.
Super good BBQ
This place is the best..my family and I loved it and will return.
OMG!! AMAZING BBQ! It was so good. The homemade sweet sauce is a must!! Its delicious. I would drive all the way there from Florida just to have it again. Will definitely make it a regular visit any time we go back to NC!! More...
Our party of four ate here during a stop in Dillsboro while riding the train. Service was fast and friendly and the brisket was excellent.
Was one of the best meals I've had. Great food and service
The Best BBQ! Great sauces. Fantastic staff.
Best Brisket I ever had in my life! Amazing food. Waitress was super sweet!
I don't know if you'll believe a stranger on the internet, but I'm telling you the truth: there is literally nothing I've had here that was bad. 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...
Wow. Great food and atmosphere. I usually dont like Carolina bbq but their Carolina sauce was excellent. Perhaps even better than the red bbq sauce. Place just needs more parking!
Had the bones were great this place is on the list to go back to.
Best Bbq, I've ever had. Everything was great
Darn good BBQ. Love the collards and the baked beans.
Fantastic food!! Service was great. Definitely will return.
Simply amazing food and service. My favorite place to eat in town
Very good barbeque sandwich. Pulled pork piled high! Large portions on sides also.
BBQ ribs very good and baked beans.
Awesome meal! We split the 3 meat combo platter with Pork, sausage & ribs! Food was excellent!!! Loved sampling the sauces! Service & atmosphere were perfect! Highly recommend! More...
I had the Ribs my wife had the Brisket. Everything was fabulous!
And I really mean that this restaurant served the best baby back ribs I've ever had. They were smokey, tender, juicy and simply delicious. Too bad this place is too far from New York; otherwise, I'd be visiting it weekly. During our visit we only tried ribs, and didn't have a chance to sample other meats, but I have no doubts that they are just as delicious. Two thumbs up !!! I highly recommend this restaurant.

Absolutely amazing food and even more amazing people! The staff was out of this world. Incredibly generous, kind, sweet, friendly and, over all genuine people. Definitely a go to place. Don’t pass it up! More...
Great barbeque place. All sides are good, seasoned we'll not just with hot spices. Great staff that are always friendly and provide fast service.
I have lived in Austin and Houston. I have never had brisket to match this. Even if you think you don't like brisket I defy you to not clean your plate. And get the burnt end beans as one of your sides. Delicious. More...
This is by far the best BBQ I have ever had. The brisket is my favorite and they serve it as a lunch time sandwich. Also very good as a main dish for dinner. The sides I have tried have all been very good. More...
Best brisket I've ever had in my life. Great place to go if you like BBQ.
