Delicious BBQ in a cool store.

One of the best BBQ sandwiches I ever had. We didn't expect much from this little store, but its BBQ was REALLY good, and the mac & cheese was really special. The list of desserts looked great, but we didn't get any because we were so full. They had yummy sodas. The staff was friendly.

Neat place and the mix of food smells was great but the BBQ was very bland and the collards were just blah,but the Brunswick stew was great! We also bought two pounds of assorted candies for the long drive home but the candy was all old, and stale but we were to far away by then to return it. Stop... More

We have been to OHS several times and somehow we are fortunate to always arrive when they have live music going. Half the main bldg is a store and the other half is the restaurant. The store has all kinds of neat items and candies and jams. You go to the counter in the back and order and then they... More

Stopped by here for lunch. They have great food. You order at the counter and they bring your food. The service was great and they were very accommodating. We ate on the porch and loved this place!

Great BBQ sandwiches. Live mountain music on the weekends and once a year they have a corn bread cook-off. A great place to browse all the country items in the store. Small place but picnic tables on the porch.

Authentic pulled pork, delicious. Homemade white slaw super fresh, hot fries peppered with ranch, crispy corn nuggets. Doesn't get much better after a long tiring day of hiking at Grandfather Mountain. Highly recommend for a taste of traditional Carolina BBQ.

This place is great. It is located in a very rustic but nice general store with lots of great candies and souvenirs and local jams and jellies which can be purchased. The restaurant is a walk through order place with various sandwiches and sides. We really enjoyed the pulled pork bbq sandwich. We also tried the fried bologna sandwich which... More

Take a nostalgic trip back in North Carolina mountain history with a visit to the old Hampton store and BBQ! Authentic tasty Nc BBQ in an old general store setting, enjoy mountain music while you dine, show unique local gifts. Walk next store to a local gallery featuring local arts and antiques. Can't wait to come back!
