Great chicken thighs and legs

The chicken was amazing. Perfectly breaded and moist on the inside. The BBQ was OK, I wasn't a huge fan. I had potato salad as a side item, which I thought was very good. Tasted slightly like deviled eggs. Sweet tea was very sweet, perfect for the meal. Just wish they had a few more sides... read more

We stopped in during a very busy lunch hour. The ordering line moved at a good pace, wait time for our food was minimal. Our order was delivered to our table, waitress came back several times to check on us, fill our drinks, etc. My husband and I each ordered a container of Brunswick stew-it's the best we've ever eaten.

I thought the place was kind of nasty. But the food was ok. And on the good side they have activities there. And a car show every week

My husband and I stop here when we travel to the OBX. He's native Texan and I'm a native Tennessean. We both love it because it's very different than the barbecue you can get in our home states. There's something about the acidic bite you get when paired with that sweet, fatty pork goodness that makes it an ultimate combo... More

The chicken was fine, well cooked. Our sides weren't great. The barbecue was pretty good as well. Oh, the tea was awful. I asked for

Good. Never bad. Same steady quality basic southern food at reasonable price. Friendly service. Go at least once a week.

Even a very good restaurant can have issues with consistent fried chicken. Some days good, some days not so much or they can have a day like today. Today at this restaurant I ate the best fried chicken breast I have ever eaten. (64 years old) It was incredibly moist, a challenge for a well cooked breast. Served hot by... More

I live in Texas so when I visit family close to this area, I drive out of the way just to eat this unbelievable eastern North Carolina BBQ and fried chicken. I even get one of those little coolers from the grocery store and buy extra to enjoy at a later time. I look forward to this great food all... More
