Did you make it by Ott's. If so, please give us an update.

Sundancer,

I did drive by there on Friday. The exterior looks to be almost completed. Not sure about the inside. I was in a hurry to get home and didn't have time to stop.

I have late breaking news! Ott's BBQ is open as of Tuesday of this week (April 22, 2008)! My Dad lives nearby and told my wife of the news at Wednesday Night Family Dinner at our church. He knew how interested I was...although I expect his interest is just as high!

I spoke to a gentlemen manning the smokers and said "are you guys finally open?" probably drooling a little at the time.

He said "well, not until 11am!"

He told me they are using all the old recipes, and he began to tell me th hours of operation...although with the aroma wafting out of the smokers I must admit I had trouble concentrating on his words. They are open for lunch and dinner...their hours will expand a little more soon. But they are open at 11am today.

Here are a few images to start your mouth watering...





Oh yeah...and the fellow said that they've been swamped...a line of people out the door each day! I don't know if I can get there today (and might not be able to get in!) but within a week, I'M GOIN'!

Sorry folks...I had the photos there at first...when I refreshed the screen, they were gone. I had tried hosting them on a Picasa Web Album...I must have done something wrong? Maybe I need to allow access to photos to roadfood forum website? It was my first time trying to use Picasa Web.

But believe me, the place is open...uh, at least it will be at 11am! ;)

If anyone wants me to email them the photos and they host...let me know.

KY TN stateline: Greater Guthrie, KY - Tiny Town Red Top Bar B Q and Blackberry Repair.

Even though the place was too cute, what pulled me off the road, was the two large BBQ catering vans, and an antique tractor made into a bbq cooker.
Cleanest rural Q place I've been in. Figure the catering biz allows them to splurge on a very nice eatery.

Pulled pork plates $5.25, two sides, the usual choices. All excellent.

PLUS: the order-taker, food-prep, cashier (one person) tinkered with wife's Blackberry and got it working again.

Can you ever get bad Q from a place on a two lane road in rural KY TN?

Barb and I stopped at Ott's today to check them out... The place was slammed and a tad disorganized because of it.
We both had a small pork sandwich, and beans...Barb had coleslaw and I had potatoe salad. We placed our order, got a number and sat inside....within about 15 minutes a young man called our number and delivered our food.
The sandwich was a little thin for the price...a regular sandwich plate is a sandwich and two sides for $7.50...the bun was toasted and the meat was very moist and tasty (no sauce on it..which was good for me)the potato salad was good nothing super special but good...the slaw was very very good...vinegar type dressing that gave it a nice sweet and sour taste with lots of celery and caraway seed. The beans were pretty OK...they have potential...they appeared to be pork and beans with pulled pork and some seasoning added.....a nice dollop of sorgum would really have helped them.
Since they just barely opened the menu is a little skimmpy....two sizes of sandwich and two kinds of meat pulled pork and ham. Of course you could get them by the pound also as well as pints and quarts of the sides and sauce. The sauce is a vinegar base sauce..Barb said it was tangy...I couldn't try it yet.
All in all, it was good...not the greatest or the worst but good. And we'll try them again next time we're in Knoxville.

I'm heading over to my folks house on Thursday, they live near Ott's. My Mom is having us over for my birthday dinner and plans to pick up Ott's and bring it home! This is unusual since my Mom always wants to cook up something good on her own (and she always does). This will be my first Ott's in several years. I'm excited...what can I do in the meantime to take my mind off Ott's?

Glad to see this blast from the past. Good to see stuff before I was involved in Roadfood.

Sheech, Chips, I thought the only place open when you first joined the Roadfood Quest was the "Garden of Eden Buffet" !!
 
Going back over that first session is a real "Hoot"  Thanks for bringing it back, Chris.
