A little pricey for fast food. The chicken's crust is soooo good and never greasy, The Brunswick stew is very good too!

From eastern NC and love this kind of BBQ. Amazing you can get this quality at a drive thru. However, if you do get it to go...you miss out on all the delicious sweet tea you can drink. I always get BBQ plate, while kids get the chicken leg kids meal, and wife the BBQ sandwich. We ate there 3... More

Fast food like you've never seen before! Unbelievable fried chicken. I don't know where they get the chicken but the pieces are huge. Ahhh the crust....the pork is very good, lean. The slaw, potato salad and hush puppies--well my mouth waters just thinking about it all. Go hungry!

I've never been a huge fan of NC BBQ. I can't get over the fact that there's no sauce and sometimes the vinegar is overly powerful. But there's something to say about a pulled pork sandwhich that has no fat and large chunks of perfectly tender meat. I forgot the sandwhich was going to have vinegar so the first bite... More

For you BBQ novices, eastern NC BBQ is sauced with vinegar and red pepper. To me, it is the highest expression of the BBQ art form! But I get that other folks like other kinds and it isn't for everyone. I haven't had a chance in recent years to get to any of the well known BBQ houses in the... More

Fabulous NC pulled pork with Smithfield's spicy BBQ sauce and perfect crispy fried chicken. The Chicken was not greasy - crisp on the outside, moist on the inside. Great sweet tea and fabulous baked beans!!!

Great inexpensive food if you like pork Bar-B-Que and Brunswick Stew. The sweet tea is made to perfection and the hush puppies are pretty good too. Great family specials good for take-out.
