Cheap BBQ Fast

Bring your cash for the BBQ Wagon (no cards accepted). The food is straight forward - small time family BBQ with a fair variety of sauces. Not gourmet dining but you are not paying exorbitant gourmet prices either. Good slaw and the fries are OK. If you need to feed a bunch of kids or teens, this... read more

Really good food at a reasonable price! Well worth your time to stop. Great BBQ and a variety of sauces. Bring cash, that's all they accept.

Lady taking orders was rude, seemed like most people had trouble ordering as if there was a mix up on the platter or special. BBQ quality is poor. Beans out of a can. Dinner was cheap so can't complain too much, we got what we paid for.

The BBQ pork was of average quality. The BBQ beef sandwich was less than average with regards to its flavor. The quantity of the servings was also average. The coleslaw was very grainy, the beans seemed straight out of the can, and the BBQ sauces were not very tasty. One positive comment. One person in our group of 7 enjoyed... More

The steak fries are awesome and plentiful! The hush puppies are delicious too! The pulled pork is a little finer than we are used to but delicious on any type of bread you desire or just served on a fork!!!!! The ribs are meaty and moist! Cole slaw is definitely on par with mamas homemade! Sweet and salty all in... More

When traveling, I try to find "local " places to eat when possible. This was a GREAT discovery. My wife had a BBQ sandwich plate, and I feasted on a BBQ chicken plate. Both were DELICIOUS. The chicken breast was very tender (and juicy) , and my wife who is not a big eater, finished most of her plate before... More

We loved this place. The decor, the staff and the wonderful food were just what we hoped to find when we went looking for NC BBQ. Our family eats quite a bit of BBQ, and we enjoy trying the different styles from different parts of the country. The pork was really delicious, and the sauces were great. My husband loved... More

The young man taking orders was friendly and very efficient. Loved the décor. Large selection of food items. Got an order to go. It was packaged well, and included utensils, napkins and condiments. BBQ was well seasoned and not spicy. Slaw was good and fries were crispy and hot. The corn nuggets were great! There were several orders for bulk... More
