I was visiting The Great Smokies region with my family and a local suggested trying Calhouns, especially the Ribs.We decided to order the rib family pack for 5 and the ribs alone were could easily feed more than five people. They were so tender and probably some of the best ribs I've ever had, the side we had was the corn pudding which was very good as well and we also ordered the baked beans, the baked beans were unique because they were made with kidney beans instead of the traditional baked beans, so it was more savory than sweet.

Overall on the ribs I would give it a 5/5 and the sides I would give a 3/5 and I rate the establishment as follows:Food 4/5Service 4/5Establishment 4/5
