Loved coming here for lunch last month. I had the beef brisket with sides that included a really tasty smoked cabbage offering. All smiles around the table, so I think my fellow diners were satisfied as well. Our waiter was very personable and even gave details about the historic framed photographs in the dining room.

The takeout is convenient and speedy. The portions are large, and best of all the food is tasty. The menu helpfully notes which items have gluten. The staff are very friendly, and the place is super clean. Armless chairs.

Had a group of 15, sat right down in the off season. Every other place should just shut down. Food was phenomenal. Brisket was perfect. Ribs awesome. Leave room for sides they are delicious as well.

You must get the brisket. Be warned that the brisket plate comes with a lot of meat and we could have split one. Must do in the outer banks.

Great location. Roomy restaurant with friendly staff. The food is outstanding. Had the pulled pork. Plentiful and smokey. The real surprise was the sides. Had the Brunswick stew and smoked cabbage and they were even better than the BBQ!!!

Let's just say I almost licked my plate clean. The flavors of the meat are amazing. The beans and slaw are great too. The staff is very attentive,... More
