Great BBQ options for all teastes.

Always a great BBQ for lunch or mid-day. Go early to avoid the noon rush :) Can't beat the quality and quantity for reasonable prices.

Living in North Carolina, I have had some great BBQ and this is some of the best. This is an out of the way place. In fact, without trip advisor, we would have never found this gem. We loved it. My wife and I both had the brisket and it was amazing. Word of warning, come early. We got there... More

I pulled a U-Turn when I saw a parking lot crammed full of cars, because anyone who knows me knows I love great Q. It was late lunch hour when I put in my to go order; a regular size pulled pork sandwich with 3 hush puppies and a side. The hush puppies were nestled like babies around the sandwich... More

Lucky enough to drive by this little place at lunchtime. I travel all over the south, and this is some of the best BBQ in North Carolina. Will definitely be back for more!

This is a great little place to get some North Carolina BBQ. Expect a line because the food and the atmosphere are just that good. They even have pick nick tables out back if you want to eat outside and many people do. You will not be disappointed.

I tell all of my friends and business associates that ask where they can get some real good barbecue, to try Smokey's. I have yet to hear any thing other than great reports from all that tried it.

Hands down, this is the best BBQ in the triangle. It is often tricky to get a table and eat on site, so plan to carry out. All the food is great. The hush puppies are addictive. Be decadent once in a while and go to Smokeys.

If you looking for NC BBQ this is not the place. I will say that the food is good. I love mom and pop restaurants. Place is down to earth, and food is great.

Prime barbecue! From the ribs chicken and pork to the sides! Everything under the bbq sun! The prices are beyond reasonable! The atmosphere is great for just hanging out to family gatherings. Can't find anything within 100 miles that compares!

Pulled in during a visit to NC just because it looked interesting. So glad we did. It is VERY casual - come as you are. Very good BBQ, good sides. The prices are good too. It was packed when we arrived which is also a sign of a good place. Will return again on my next visit to NC!
