My son in law wanted to try this place. He is on a BBQ kick lately. I was a bit hesitant but went along with it. All I can say is the place is a dive inside but the BBQ was very good! We all enjoyed this place. The sauces were okay, but our favorite was the spicy house. That... More

The breakfast is not bad, at a very fair price. Loved the homemade biscuits. The waitress however appeared to be annoyed and had a general dislike for her job. Service was a little better at dinner. The BBQ and wings were good. The Mac & cheese was from a box. Portions were a little small. May try again in the... More

I always try to rate my reviews based on relative criteria. BBQ is something that I love. All styles and meats. Although being from NC means that I'm the most critical on pork. The BBQ house does pulled pork along with ribs and chicken. We tried all three. We went for lunch and the Saturday before Labor Day and had... More

The food and service were great. The prices and portions were also great. The hostess who seated us was a little hateful, but a great experience otherwise. I highly recommend this place to any bbq lovey visiting Oak Island.

I had read some negative reviews and had some concerns about eating dinner here but let me tell you that the food was amazing. The pulled pork was moist and tender. Loved the slightly sweet hush puppies. Not perfectly clean but worth it for the great food!

Breakfast is really good here. No pancakes though. No wait unlike the other breakfast places on the island. Great service.

Our party of 4 adults and 3 kids really enjoyed the BBQ house! Plan to come early or have to wait. We had chicken, pork, and ribs and all were excellent. Fried corn on the cob a great surprise and tokens for the kids made their day! Thank you!

Stopped in for a late lunch and found the BBQ pork a bit dry. We got the lunch specials and found the portion size a bit small; especially if you get the grilled cheese and brunswick stew. While the menu stated all lunch specials come with fries, we were told the grilled cheese special did not. We did get them... More
