Our caterer cancelled on us a week before my wedding and Shana and her crew stepped up and made it happen for me without blinking an eye. They were amazing to work with and the guests raved and raved about how great the food was. Thank you

I don't see how anyone could possible say the meat isn't smoked, the pit is in the middle of the restaurant. Personally I think this is the best Q I have tried in middle Tennesee. Haven't eaten everywhere, but this is cooked the right

Being locals, we couldn't wait till Martins opened to support them. We tried everything over about 4 visits and 3 takeouts at the old place. Definitely NOT the best anything we've ever had with fat and hard burned meat chunks, limp gray

I'm a bit picky (okay... REALLY picky) about my barbecue. Pork is of course the only "real" barbecue but my measure of a great smoke chef is the quality of his beef brisket. If you can BBQ a good brisket, you likely have the rest down pat.
