I had a BBQ pork sandwich (which was HUGE) and fries and it was amazing! I'm from Memphis, TN (known for the best BBQ). This is better than any I've ever had in my life and I've tried them all. It's not shredded or chopped like traditional BBQ, it's more of a sliced kind like a Philly Cheese Steak texture. If you come here, prepare to wait because it's that good. If you're in a party of 2 or less, you won't have to wait as long.
How I made it a decade attending Bristol races without finding this place is BEYOND me! SO glad I did. We were literally in line with people who had driven 4 hours for the cue, and NOT the races. Completely worth the wait. This is my kind of barbecue. Tomato and vinegar based and spiced just right. Dad and I got it to go and ate down at the smokehouses. Restaurant is truly off the beaten path and you might miss the street sign if you really arent looking for the road to turn onto. Slaw and beans are absolutely declicious. Might have to get adventurous for our next visit in the spring. Massive portions and grabbed a jar of sauce to take home. Try it!
Hands down the best.. Worth the drive if it is one.. Size of the sandwiches and platters are more than generous.. The beans were great, fries were fresh cut and good, nothing bad at all to say, we went at an off time (230pm) and it was still 2/3 full.. Service was still quick and tasteful We will go back soon.. Without a doubt the best bbq ive ever had.. Worth the hype

Probably the best team of Subway sandwich artists I've ever met. This Subway is just north of the river on 19/11E as you come north from Johnson City to Bristol Motor Speedway or the Bristol Dragway. Sits as a companion store to a gas station, yet has it's own dining room and separate staff. I've come to rely on this location for their hours (7am-10pm), friendly service, and ability to accommodate during Bristol race weeks. They ALWAYS have fresh ingredients, staff up accordingly, and will take phone in orders ahead of time. Everything here works. You can count on these guys to be open and have plenty of Subway goodness. Plus, you can gas up and grab some cold beer and ice for the cooler all in one place. My go-to Bristol raceday meal!
