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.

A&G’s is a small, hidden diner serving southern food. It’s a no-frills place with a simple, traditional menu. The food, while inexpensive, was good, but not great. I found it a bit bland and slightly salty. I enjoyed the food but it just tasted a little rushed. If you’re looking for a quick meal on a budget then this is... More

Not the best! Barbecue was terrible. Pot roast was dry. Sweet tea was good. Overpriced for low quality food.

When I think the beach, Barbecue doesn't leap to the front of my mind, but there is only so much shrimp, chowder and seafood you can eat on a trip. Our normal order from here is a pint of Barbecue and a small slaw for less than 15$ then we make sandwiches on our beach trip for a couple meals.... More

We have a favorite barbecue place in the Emerald Isle area which we go to when on vacation. We vacationed in Carolina Beach this year instead and A& G reminded us of our usual place so we tried it. Delicious fried chicken! We took it back and ate it in our hotel room and it was one of the best... More

Stopped in for a take out order. Large Chicken Pack (8 pc plus a pint each of green beans & mashed pototoes) plus a pint of BBQ & 2 dozen hush puppies for 4 adults & 3 children. Waited about 15 min for the chicken to finish cooking. Nice to have fresh cooked vs heat lamp warmed chicken. The fried... More

Two years ago we was the first time we had their food. We tried the fried chicken, BBQ, fish, Brunswick stew and a few sides. Excellent! It was a sure thing that we would have them cater our wedding dinner in part. This happened just last week now. The amount of food was incredible in the friend chicken, BBQ, three... More

My wife and I go here every year while on vacation, in fact we go several times a week when at Carolina Beach. Together, we had hot dogs, cheese burgers, fried chicken, BLT and BBQ. All were terrific and we're to the point of regretting eating lunch at most all other places when at the beach. Consistently great food and... More
