Lunch at Barrel House BBQ, Lynchburg, TN

Barrel House BBQ – 105 Mechanic St. South, Lynchburg, TN

Lunch after our Jack Daniel Distillery Tour included a stop at Barrell House BBQ in downtown Lynchburg.


Inside. The walls are graffitied with signatures and notes from patrons.

A cute little spot for some tasty BBQ.  You can eat in, take out or choose to sit in an open picnic table spot next door.  Since the rain was coming we chose to eat indoors.

Upon inspection of the menu we decided on a pulled pork sandwich with a side of chips and a loaded BBQ baked potato.

The meat is truly succulent (juicy, tender and tasty). Sauce bottles are located at the table. You have a choice of three different BBQ flavors: Scorpion Ghost, Habanero or Sweet Mild.  Each of the sauces contain 80 proof whiskey and are available for purchase.

I’ll admit I was too “chicken” to try the scorpion ghost. Steve tried the habanero which he enjoyed. It was described as a medium. I went with the “safe” choice: mild, which was sweet with just enough “spice”.

This was a great spot for a quick bite.
