This Tiny Shop In Tennessee Serves Barbeque To Die For

Note: as of January 2021, this restaurant is permanently closed. 

Good barbecue doesn’t lie in a secret recipe or a quirky eatery. No, those things are important – but truly great barbecue comes from the heart of Tennessee, served with a side of southern hospitality. We stumbled across Family BBQ, located in Dickson, and simply fell in love with their adoration of bbq and community. These are true Tennessee hearts, here.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
