The bar-b-que was was really tasty. I ordered the small bar-b-que sandwich and is was very filling......they had several sauces to pick from. The fries and slaw were good. The kiddos (ages 8 and 4) really enjoyed the corn dogs. The people working there were very cordial and very kind to us. They helped with the extra things that we... More

We are in the area often, and the Bar-B-Que Wagon is one of our regular stops. I almost always get the pork sandwich - the pork is chopped fine and it had a good smoky flavor, which complements a nice assortment of sauces. I like to mix the "Hot & Spicy" with the "Honey" barbecue. The slaw is served on... More

Found this place by accident. BBQ Chicken was tasty but the BBQ was like mush , ground really fine and had a weird taste I could not identify. The slaw had onion powder in it and was also weird tasting. Pigs have more room in a pen than you do in the dining area. Nice try but we will pass... More

The BBQ here wsnt bad, and there were quite a few options for sauce, sides, etc. The person who took our order wasn't friendly and seemed annoyed that we didn't know what we wanted when we walked in the door. It was pretty small inside but we enjoyed sitting outside by the river with our dog.

I kept reading the reviews and felt I needed to at least say that this is NC bbq. Western NC (WNC) barbecue is sweeter and sometimes smokier than the middle/eastern parts of NC. This is how it's served here, as far as the bbq wagon, it's a nice little place with cool decor. The food is usually good but the... More

I'm local and have been a few times in the past. But this time was the worst I have ever been treated in a restaurant. To summarize. .my order was wrong. When brought to the cashiers attention I was yelled at. When brought to the managers attention I was asked if I worked, where I lived, if I was local,... More

Food was good and the place was clean. Not much more to say. It was warm in the dining area but it is August in NC... LOL.

The food here is just OK. My onion rings were burnt and the service was SLOW and way too pricey. I will not be back!!
