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

Great tasting food... Even the sides had imagination and flavor. I had the beef brisket because they ran out of barbecue. They do run out so get there early.

They selectively-serve only they people they want to serve. I got there 10 mins before they were to be open. The host met me outside and said they will open soon. I said ok, but can I wait inside in the a/c. I was told no. But another gentlemen sitting outside already had his drinks on the table!!!!!! He even... More

This restaurant has really good food. The barbecue is excellent. They clearly start out with good pork and they know how to cook it right. The sides are incredible. I'm particularly happy that they offer Lexington style cole slaw as an option - many places here and further east don't.

We have eaten here several times, and it was always wonderful. Service great, food fantastic, pricing reasonable. But after an absence of a little over a year, we went there last night and were quite disappointed. They have become just one more restaurant that was great and then slid downhill for whatever reason. First clue was when we arrived at... More

We have never been disappointed with anything here! They have the best brisket and green beans!! My husband loves the catfish and my dad ( who is very picky) loved the BBQ!
