I ordered the chicken plate with side of baked beans and potato salad. Do the math, if you order the sandwich and 2 sides, you just as much and get maybe less. So I went for the plate. At first, I thought the sides were...More

Archer's here in Karns is our favorite local spot for BBQ. We love all of the sauce options. The sweet potato chips were really a nice addition. We even picked up tshirts to support local food.

We chose Archers' based on Yelp/TA reviews, which failed us. I had pulled pork and my husband had ribs. Both meat choices, wrapped in foil, were pulled out of a "warmer", cut/chopped and served. Neither meats had any flavor. The ribs had zero crust of...More

This bbq is the closest to getting Memphis style bbq without going to Memphis. Very good food at a reasonable price!

When folks ask for the key to making moist, tender, drop-dead delicious barbeque, they expect us to ramble on about sauce, marinades and rubs. Those are all important, but what it really comes down to is selecting the best meat and then slowly cooking and smoking that meat to perfection. We know that if we take care of business on that end, the pork, ribs and chicken that we put on your plate will be the best you ever tasted.
