Description: Listed in Southern Living as theRidgewood's pork is as good as it gets. Hickory-cooked hams are sliced and souped with a tangy, dark-red, slightly smoky sauce (available by the pint and quart near the cash register) and served as a platter, under a heap of terrific dark-gold French fries, or in a giant sandwich that spills out all sides of the bun. South's Finest Barbecue.

What you've heard about the wait is true - it was a very long wait to get in. The staff was great. The atmosphere was neat (nostalgic). There were 4 adults in our party. We all had pulled pork. Some had the sandwich & others the platter, but we all had the same opinion. We were all accustomed to pulled pork so keep that in mind. The meat was more like it was shaved meat and not as tender in our opinion. If you are accustomed to that, this could be just what you are looking for.

This place gets filled up 5 minutes after it opens. They have a unique appetizer, blue cheese dressing and crackers. I know this sounds strange but after you try it , you'll be buying a quart of it to follow you home. They have BBQ pork and BBQ beef which is excellent. Baked beans, French fries, Cole slaw, etc for sides

Nice to stop by to say you've been to this little historical restaurant. Is renowned for it's barbeque. Try the blue cheese bowl! We enjoyed our lunch after a nice time at Off the Grid Mountain Adventures! Is just around the corner from it.
