A few of our menu favorites at Miss Lillian’s Smokehouse include:

Hand-Breaded Fried Chicken
Hand-Breaded Fried Chicken is a Southern staple, and this rendition is simply good. Crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, there’s a reason fried chicken is a long-time favorite.

Smoked Chicken
If you prefer your chicken not fried, go with the Smoked Chicken. Still crispy on the outside and just as tasty, this version does away with the breading and lets the meat shine on its own.

Smoked Roast Beef
For red-meat aficionados, the Smoked Roast Beef is slow-cooked for hours until it’s done to perfection. Tender, flavorful and available in a range of doneness.

Hickory Pit Beans
These aren’t just any baked beans. The Hickory Pit Beans are infused with smoked hickory flavor and cooked to perfection. You’ll want a big bowl of them.

Magic Dessert Bar
It’s on the dessert bar and “magic” is in the name. Do you really need to know more about the Magic Bar? Take a bite, and all your questions will instantly be answered.

Insider Tip: 
– The seated dining and air conditioning make Miss Lillian’s Smokehouse popular on hot days, and the ability to get seconds or thirds leads to some parties staying a while. As a result, there’s often a long and slow line to get in on the parks busiest afternoons. Try to avoid major mealtimes so that you don’t have to wait in line as long.
