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

Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, the owner is very cold and money hungry, the place uses the cheapest everything possible and it isn't even that clean considering there reputation

I went with a group of 4 people and everyone got something different, so naturally everyone's dish became a sample platter for everyone else. Had the BBQ chicken, BBQ pulled pork, and BBQ ribs. The serving sizes are MASSIVE, you get the meat as well as a generous choice of 2 sides for an exceptionally low price. Compared to where... More

If you can catch them open good luck! The BBQ is just average. The french fries are really good, the steak fry kind. They are the only BBQ restaurant in town so when you get the craving for it and drive all the way to town to get disappointed that they are closed its upsetting! I do enjoy the brisket... More
