Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Gorkys is for meat lovers only. All others go elsewhere. The barbecues are the moist fantastic barbecue meat that everyone loves. The service was outstanding. The portions are massive .yummy yummy yummy.

My husband and I recently visited Gorky's. We are new to the area and had looked up online for good places to eat. It has a strong "small town" vibe to it that I thought was charming. The waitress was so kind and helpful! But...let me tell you, their chili and cornbread is to die for. It is genuinely the best I have EVER had! My husband agreed with me and he grew up in the south. Their meat was tasty as well. We were not disappointed and the best part of it all, it's affordable!More

Small town diner atmosphere with great food and service. The specialty is pork, but everything from coffee to full dinners is great. During this time seating is very limited so they can properly service the friends that are dining there at any moment. Don't be...afraid to try anything on the menu! The owners are on had every time I have been there.More

Horrible service, weird atmosphere, HORRIBLE food!! This place caters to locals/frequent customers only! Our "smoked ribs" had no taste and were drizzled with this awful ketchup bbq sauce!! These "ribs" were definitely boiled and put on the smoker for a few minutes afterwards! Also very...poor quality meat! My side of "pasta & cheese" was the sadest excuse for Mac and cheese I have ever seen...it was legitimately pasta with velveta cheese sauce drizzled on top....it had absolutely no flavor and was absolutely disgusting!! Even the "sweet tea" we both ordered was awful and had no taste!!! We will absolutely never set foot in this sad excuse for a restaurant ever again! This was our first and last time eating here!!More

I read the recent bad review and just had to respond. My boyfriend and I go to gorkys at least 3 times a month and it is one of our favorite places. The ribs are the best, the smoked chicken and elk burger are in...creditable, the gorky sauce and the Carolina sauce yummy! I have never had anything bad here and the service can't be beat. Anita is the best. We will continue to come to this wonderful establishment.More

We were in the area for a dog event and had driven by this place multiple times. It looked interesting so Sunday afternoon we decided to try it before driving 4+ hours home. Each day we passed I noticed the smoker out front with smoke...coming from it. We went in about 4:15pm. One table outside was finished and about 1/2 the tables inside had people at them but I saw no food. Now, smoked food is cooked and then served so unless there is some prep going on or a side dish being prepared, BBQ SHOULD be served pretty quickly. Most BBQ is not "cooked to order". I stood by the sign indicating "Wait to be Seated" and was ignored by the two people working. One did say she would be right with me and then proceeded to go to a table and then disappeared. After close to 10 minutes I approached the register and was asked by what appeared to be the "manager" if I had a carryout order, I responded in the negative and asked if we could be seated outside and waited on. I got a surly response to the effect "we are slammed and it will be 10-15 minutes and if I didn't want to wait, this was not the place to be". They were not slammed IMHO. We finally placed our order with a server who apologized but that came with a sob story about her car accident and it only being her 4th day on the job. Two "pulled" pork sandwiches and 1 order of fries. Since this is smoked BBQ, it should be ready and just the fries would be any delay. The sandwiches came with their "homemade" sauce (very little of it at that and no offer of more if needed or wanted) but no fries. Upon checking, she admitted she forget to put the fries in with the order. It gets worse. There is no "pulling" of the pork we were served. It was some underwhelming cut of pork that appeared to have been baked that was cut into cubes. NO SMOKE RING, NO PINK, NO TASTE OR SMELL OF SMOKE and a color and texture that was not appealing and had almost ZERO taste. What a disappointment. We asked for our check when our food arrived and was told by the server it would have to be "checked" over by the "manager" before she could bring it. I suggested she make sure the fries were not charged since they never were put in with our order. Not sure what the smoker out front was used for but this BBQ was unlike no other I have ever seen or tasted and I hope to never do so again. Honestly, if this is how this place is run and the usual presentation and quality of food, I do not know how they stay in business. Others I saw leaving did not really look happy or satisfied, perhaps their experience was similar to ours. Honestly, this was one of the overall worst dining experiences I have ever had. I despise fast food but would opt for one of the chains over this place.More

Went to the WEB site to order 5 Burritos, the price was $9.95, a little pricy but it was my wife's birthday and some family was coming. When I got there to pick them up, they said they were $13.95 although their menu the said...they were $11.95, so I questioned them they said they were not responsible for the web site. I try so purport local business during this cri, sis but if restaurant owners are going to RIP people off, they deserved to go out of business. I WILL NEVER GO TO THIS PLACE AGAIN AND HOPE OTHER PEOPLE DO THE SAMEMore

Love this little restaurant! It has indoor dining but check if open due to covid. It is casual and family friendly. The waitress with the dark hair is our favorite! She is so efficient and caring. Also their is outside picnic tables with garden setting....Gorky BBQ sauce is our favorite. His own. They have chicken, ribs, turkey and more. Cooker outside plus kitchen indoors. Salmon is very good too! Many sides from homemade hot cornbread , coleslaw, bake beans and many more. Great desserts listed on a board. He changes them but all good!More

Gorky's is my all-time favorite restaurant, and if you love burgers, this will be your new favorite too! If it's in season, you HAVE to try the burger stuffed with pesto and a side of their homemade cornbread.. It's amazing! But besides the food, the...service is what makes me love Gorky's even more. The couple that owns this restaurant are two of the nicest people I've met. From dining here often, I've gotten to know Anita a little bit. She is always walking around talking to the customers and making sure everything is perfect for them. She genuinely wants her customers to have a good experience and I really appreciate that. I recommend this restaurant without hesitation.More

This is our favorite restaurant! I must eat gluten free because I have Celiac disease. Mr. Gorkey explained that there is no gluten in any of their delicious sauces or rubs. They cook only fresh cut fries (which are my fav) in their fryers. They...use a different fryer when they offer fried pickles. The place is always very clean and the staff are like family! The bbq is awesome! Their food is always fresh and made to order. They have awesome homemade soups and desserts which are not glutenfree unfortunately! But my husband enjoys them; I get a dish of the best ice cream when I have room for dessert! Oh, and the prices are great! It means so much when I can safely eat such great food without the fear of having a sprue attack because the staff understand gluten free!More

To tell you the truth I really do not have anything BAD to say about this place but it was just a run of the mill place with GOOD service. We have a good portion of the menu and felt the food was average. There...a only in FEW places to eat in the area but this is among the top from people we asked.More
