love their ribs, only problem is they are not always fresh, sometimes even overcooked
Andy Q is the best one who cooks the ribs. He and Stan both make sure that they are juicy and clearly not burnt. If u get burnt ones chances are the Mexican lady cooked them. I feel like when I go there you can taste the difference between who is cooking. If you ask the waitresses who is cooking you'll see.
I've been going to stans for years on end. And I willcontinue too. They are amazing and the help is very very nice. They are always well cleaned and well mannered.

I have always and will always love Stan's. However, lately I've been less than pleased with my experiences with picking up call in orders. Chicken salads (which are delicious) with no chicken or dressing, a box full of bbq and no sides, and once I was given a completely different order than what I placed. All times when I called to tell them about it, the person on the phone was completely remorseless and even once I was asked "Well, what do you expect me to do?". After that time, I hung up, called back a little later, and asked for Stan. I was told he wasn't available and I left a message. After two days and no response, I called and had to leave yet another message. To this day - no call back. I also called a couple times in regards to having them cater a very large party for me and was told I had to talk to Stan. After four, yes FOUR messages I still hadn't heard back so I went with a company from outside Greeneville.
Again, I will repeat that I love Stan's and I'm still a patron. However, if I encounter much more of the attitude and lack of both professionalism and customer service, I won't be for much longer.
I've had more chickenless chicken salads from stan's than I can remember, it happens everytime you call in an order or go through the drive thru. They do have good food but not good enough for a 10 dollar box of lettuce.

Their salads are not $10 abox. They are expensive but not that bad. Maybe you should start checking your order before you drive away? Call ins are a pain anyway for most restaurants. It literally takes more time to take a call in order for salads than it is to make them.
Stans keeps them freshmade and on hand so that you can get it faster. There is no point to bother the drive thru and all the nice ppl who work it with stupid orders.

Tried Stan's once, didn't seem to want to wait on us foreigners. We sat for 45 minutes after an initial 25 minute wait to place an order. Haven't been back. Didn't know there was a Top Choice, but will definitely give it a try.

Just wondering what is going on at Stan's BBQ. I know Top choice has been doing pretty good and I always hear that people like them. So where does that leave Stan's?

Top Choice is my personal favorite. One negative, they are closed Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

The only negative thing about Stan's is the price. ate there for lunch last week and just for me it was $16 not including tip.. side salad, water, and pulled pork platter. Tasty but I can not do that for lunch to often.

Over-priced and poor quality. They wouldn't last in a larger town.

Poor quality and poor service lately, that's for sure. If you dont have a big party and have people they know personally, then they won't come to your table more than twice. Plus, the BBQ has been hit or miss lately- the Carolina style has been completely watered down and the meat has been pretty spotty as well.

They have raised their prices on their Smoked Turkey Salad. It is now a little bitty salad with no tomatoes and almost $10.00 now. Well, they have lost several very good customers now!!!

Got a dozen chicken wings at the drive thru. They were extremely dry & hard, could not eat them. I will ALWAYS check my food before I leave the window, that is IF I DECIDE TO GO BACK AGAIN.
