Stopped over during long drive. Got there near closing and didn't have good knowledge of menu but staff helped out without feeling rushed because they were close to closing. Had the dry rub ribs with the sauces on the side and they were amazing...we traveled the States for the following two weeks and we had ribs from Texas to Missouri... More

Quick. Not crowded on Saturday mornings. Country style options with or without BBQ. I ordered the cheese and BBQ omelet with southern fries. My wife had fried eggs. Tasty. If you want to skip the wait at Cracker Barrel or not in the mood for Pancakes this is a very good option

We were visiting the area and are always open to trying new Bar-B-Que spots, and it was lunch time. They have counter ordering service but deliver your meal to your table when it's prepared. We both ordered the sampler platter, but with different ribs (one dry, one sweet) and different sides. So we could try a bigger variety of their... More

SweetTeaLisa, Thank you for the detailed review. Your feedback is extremely important to us. It seems we fell short of your expectations with the ribs and cornbread which should always have great flavor. We'll also make sure to do better at keeping the ladies bathroom in ship shape!

Wanted something besides deep fried food, so we stopped in to Bar-B-Cutie in the plaza. Got the Beef Brisket, Baked Potato with just Butter, and baked beans. I was disappointed they did not serve beer with the bbq, but oh well. As soon as I took a bite of the potato I knew it was not butter in there. I... More

MACinMTN, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Your feedback is important to us. We're sorry about the butter and margarine mishap. We do our best to provide excellent service and it seems we fell short here by serving you up a potato with margarine instead of butter. We do serve beer, but only at a few locations.... More

We just moved to Franklin about 3 months ago and I saw this BBQ from the road several times. I tried it out the other day and the food was DELICIOUS. I had the ribs, wet and they were mouth-watering. I WILL BE BACK.

come here and look at the expansive comfort food menu if you can't decide what you want to eat! They have a bit of everything that will make you feel well fed. Love the bbq potatoes and the tea punch for sure. Good food for little money and they do a great catering business too!

Labor Day found myself looking for some place open & ran across this place. Made me nervous that the place was pretty empty, but was craving BBQ. Gave it a try and it wasn't bad. Not great, but not bad. Friendly staff, lots of options. Tried the pulled pork, ribs and slaw and beans.
