Another good barbecue place

The food was very good. A large country style barbecue plate and for approximately $12.00 you can leave there filled up. The staff was very pleasant. This is one of the places I would not mind going back to.

We eat here a couple times a month. Our Church often uses them to cater our fellowship meals. The owner is friendly and service is prompt and efficient. Food is consistently good!

If you dont know where the restaurant is located you wont know that it sits behind a garage or in front of an old hotel in benson near I-95. However, the southern fried chicken makes such an impression on your taste buds that it will keep you craving more and an attitude to tell others about their service!!!! The food... More

We travel a lot and check out BBQ joints everywhere we go. Stopped here while traveling through Benson. Restaurant looked clean, and we were greeted right away. We ordered sweet tea, but were disappointed in the flavor. It wasn't very sweet and had a strange taste. For food we got a BBQ plate with string beans, a BBQ sandwich, fries,... More

Love the local BBQ, friendly service, and Southern fare. We stopped here on a road trip as an alternative to stopping at a fast food chain type of place, and we were delighted. Would absolutely recommend this place to anyone desiring a bit of good Southern cooking.

This outstanding little BBQ joint has been around well over 60 years, and has actually grown to 3 or 4 locations, after a change of ownership around 1990. This is the original location, and remains the best, in my opinion. They don't cook the whole pig here, just shoulders, so the mildly chopped pork has a leaner texture and taste... More

We knew there was a good BBQ joint in Benson but didn't know the name or where it was. Finally got the information from the local flea market. It was worth the trouble. The BBQ was excellant. Eastern NC style of course. Hush puppies were among the best I have had recently. All the sweet tea you can drink. It... More
