Good Eastern Carolina BBQ

Friendly service, and good Eastern Carolina style BBQ. Traditional pork sandwich with slaw was very good, and the Brunswick Stew was decent. The highlight of the meal though believe it or not, were the onion rings. All in all, it was a very good, casual family friendly beach BBQ joint. I'd... read more

I don't know what has happened to the food here, but the last two times I have gone there, the chicken, beans, hush puppies and corn were overcooked and cold. Don't waste your money here.

I was looking for some catfish and country food one night and came upon A & G. At the time, a heavy rain had fallen and most of the streets were flooded. I'm glad I stuck it out and got food from here anyway. It was really good and at a good price. I would definitely be back and try... More

This is one of my two favorite restaurants on the island. There is never a trip taken to Carolina Beach without stopping here. While the prices have gone up a bit since we first began coming (who knows how long ago) it's entirely worth it and not nearly as much as you would pay anywhere else. My go-to orders are... More

Exactly what we were looking for in authentic, locally-owned southern goodness. Small place, not fancy, with inside seating, rolls of paper towels on the tables, styrofoam plates, and a lot of locals coming by for pickup. The fried chicken was Southern excellence! Perfectly breaded and cooked, super moist. And the sweet tea?! Refills please!

When we are in Carolina Beach for a week we get take out at least 2 times. We always get the fried chicken or fried shrimp. Their sides are wonderful too, especially the slaw and collards. Yum!

Good Eastern Carolina Bar-B-Q Is getting harder and harder to find. This place has very good Pork bar B Q and Fried Chicken. The sweet tea is in there with the best I have tried. They have Eat in as well as take out.
