Waitresses were attentive, service was fast. Brunswick stew and mac/cheese were excellent. However, the meat wasn't piping hot. Smoked chicken had good smoke flavor.

Small menu and great food. Great service, smiles and all... Kids menu is excellent and enough. ( great portion..we had to take out leftovers). They sell their own Bbq sauce around $5.00. Reasonnable price for excellent dood. I loved the pulled chicken plate with cole slaw. My kids loved their ribs till fingers lick... We will certainly go back.

Our family stopped in for lunch. We got the brisket, fried chicken, ribs, and a fried chicken wrap collectively. Not one complaint about the food or the sides. Food and service here are the gold standard for BBQ.

This was a huge surprise! Food was off the chain good. Nc BBQ at its best. My wife got the beef brisket and it was the bear she has ever had. The sides were like grandma used to make, very very good! The place was clean and bright with very friendly staff.

All in all, we tried the pulled pork, beef brisket, fried chicken, ribs, macaroni & cheese, green beans and slaw. The food was absolutely stellar. Also, everyone working is efficient and friendly. The restaurant itself is clean and open. There is... More
