Full Service BBQ- Maryville,TN

It was cold and dark, with bits of crunchy snow still on the ground- one of those forgotten nights in the twilight of the year. Making our way back south after a week long trip to the mountains, my family and I were passing through Maryville and looking for dinner. Driving through the middle of town, we saw a few of the standard fast food places, quickly came to the other end of town and turned around. Only on the way back through did we see this:


It was an old service station turned restaurant, the gas pumps replaced with wooden picnic tables. My family wasn't as excited as me about trying it out, so I dropped them off to get subs nearby and returned. Service is drive through (or walk up) only. I pulled around the back of what used to be the attendant's counter, and a friendly girl brought me a menu.

I chose a pork sandwich combo which she quickly prepared and brought out. The pulled pork was topped with a few onion slices and one slice of sweet pickle, plus a squirt of their sweet and spicy sauce. The meat had good flavor by itself but I would have liked more of it. I actually liked the added onion. Don't know about the pickle-one slice didn't make much difference anyway. The potato salad was good too, if not very original. Not a bad meal for a cold winter night.

Thank you for stopping by my restaurant. I am glad to hear your experience was enjoyable. I preach to my employees all the time that every visitor is a critic and it is important to treat everyone with the respect they deserve. It sounds to me like my diligence is paying off.
