Good people, good BBQ, and a good time.

While I admit I am friends with one of the owners here I must say the food is good stuff. Is it the best BBQ? Sorry, bud but no. Is it good? Yeah sure thing it is. Would I stop here again? Absolutely This is a family owned place that serves good food… and honestly I have not found much... read more

On a Saturday Boyz night out, we got to experience not only whole pig bbq, but the best smoked chicken I've ever had. Bone in chicken smoked to perfection, tender but not over cooked the flavor subtle allowing the natural flavor of the chicken come through. I will definately be back. If you finish and would lie to try it,... More

Four of us went there on a Friday night to try out the Eastern NC style pork BBQ. Three in the party had never tried the chopped pork/vinegar based sauce sort of BBQ and all of us were very happy with the results. The pork was tasty and the servings were big enough to keep the crew happy and well... More

I am Biased toward this establishment because it is in my Family. My Cousins Steve and Matt have taken over and expanded the menu then added a food truck. It will not disappoint. They are truly carrying one My Uncle Bill's legacy. Great job!!!

Having been here a few times. While their ribs are very good, their pulled pork, slaw and hushpuppies are the reasons I keep going back! They are all 3 among the best that I have ever had! They have a very good vinegar sauce and their new tomato based sauce is also very good!

Five of us went here and order chicken, ribs, BBQ pork, and fried fish. We also order onion rings, bake bean, slaw, potatoes salad and FF. No one had a bad thing to say about our food. Our waitress was great with us and filled our glasses when needed. The place is not to fancy, just good food. They have... More

Dinner at Bill Spoons was good. The restaurant was not too crowded. Our waitress was a little slow but very polite. The meal was tasty and the barbeque is very flavorful. Good mac n cheese.

Pretty good bbq. Family friendly and old school. I recommend the pork bbq and fries. The décor was a little dated but I feel like that might have added to the experience.

went there twice. Got the pulled pork bbq sandwich and fried pickles. both times the pulled pork was dry and lacked all flavor. The homemade bbq sauce was great though and the price was not horrible. was looking for amazing bbq and did not find it there
