They had what you would expect. The chopped pork and the chicken and ribs were all excellent. Sides were good but nothing to special. Service was decent. Worth a trip back if I'm in the area and in the mood for BBQ

Old time barbecue place. Limited and simple. However, what they make is exquisite, well done and the people are super friendly. We took the food next door as we had our dog, and they delivered it to us with a dog bone for our dog. The barbecue is perfect, and the slaw. Is just right..not too wet, just crunchy enough,... More

Had seen the reviews and decided to search it out, well off the main road but well worth it. Got there a bitt before noon on a Thursday and there were already cars in the lot. My husband had the brisket sandwich, I had the special ( pulled chicken) both were excellent. Sides were great too with a choice of... More

We had seen the Hillsborough BBQ Company listed on the new Great North Carolina BBQ map and couldn't believe we'd not heard of it before. We checked on-line and at first glance we liked the look of the place but it seemed a bit expensive for pork BBQ and some of the traditional accompaniments. But hey, every BBQ place is... More

Was in town briefly on a Wednesday night and stopped in for dinner with my family of three. Had pork bbq and brisket, and draft beers. Have been here before and each time have had good food and quick service. I'd recommend it and will return again. Plenty of parking but restaurant can get crowded. It may be considered pricey...

Made a detour on our trip up the East Coast to try Allen's bbq, which is down the road, but closed for the evening at 5. Ended up at this place near by. In a quaint old NC town. BBQ is very good and interesting twists on traditional sides. The fried okra was great! The choice of slaws were updates... More

I stopped in with my cross country team (big eaters all) traveling home from a meet. We were seated immediately, served promptly and were back on the road in no time. There were 13 of us in all, no one left hungry and the food was delicious. This will likely become a regular stop on the way home from the... More

I have been eating at this restaurant for over a year and I have never had a bad meal or bad service. I love BBQ and I have tried hundreds of BBQ places in NC and SC - this one is the best! My favorite is the BBQ plate with mixed baked beans and slaw. AND I mustn't forget the... More

I went there this sunday at 11.30am I ordered baby back ribs and fried okra. But when my ordered arrived by the look of the ribs it looks like its a left over. The fried okra was not there but I got mac and cheese instead. The ribs is soooo dry! Not fresh. The meat is not tender. Maybe because... More

We eat at this restaurant weekly and are always pleased with the quality of the food and the great service. We especially enjoy sitting at the bar and visiting with Jitka who knows our usual order and gets the fresh coffee started when she sees us. We order the pulled pork plate with white slaw and the yummy baked beans.... More
