We had traveled from PA to NC for a concert. We drove straight through for 14 hours and our entire trip from home to concert back home was only 56 hours. After driving that long, we didn't feel like dealing, but we wanted good food. I did a locations near you search and found this place. They have a delivery... More

The little time we had to wait was well worth it. Two shared a plate of ribs and they were delicious. The environment was simple and somewhat small but I am not an atmosphere man anyhow.

We enjoyed the ribs, potato salad and slaw so much. Next time I will get a whole rack. Not because I was hungry, just because it was so dang good!!!! My wife had the BBQ Sand and she said it was off the hook as well. Just found my favorite new rib joint.

First time I went, I got the ribs with fried okras. The ribs were good and the okras needed to be cooked a little longer. The second time I went, I got the wings. They were not that great. And by not great, I mean I wish I had went somewhere else to get wings. I'm not sure I'll go... More

I have visited solo, as a couple and also as part of business ventures and this great eatery has never failed us. Great variety and everything on the menu is as delectable as the next! Always reminds me of why I love southern BBQ!
