We had BBQ Plate and Chicken Plate specials - excellent food, nice servings; ours included drink. Good tea and deserts including banana pudding and apple cobbler. Waitress Jenny was very helpful and pleasant. Two choices of cold slaw, both good. Any kind of BBQ sauce you could want.

The BBQ House serves really good pulled pork, ribs, chicken and more. Lots of sides to choose from, and 6 sauces to satisfy all comers. Desserts too. Big take-out business. Friendly staff. We eat here for dinner 3-6 times per month year round. Price is right. Great for couples, friends, family. Kids special some nights. Also great for lunch...haven't tried... More

Really good BBQ. Not so overly smoked that it haunts you for hours. Great with or without the variety of sauces. I tried them all with the pulled pork and they were all good. The red slaw was a treat since we don't get it back home.

Went here for lunch one day. Our server was a young gal who was very informative, helpful and had a very engaging personality. The bbq was very good. I'm a big lover of bbq and I was very pleased with my pulled pork sandwich. There were around 5-6 sauce choices on the table so I was able to sample different... More

The BBQ here is refreshing after living in South Carolina. While they have pulled pork and a mustard base sauce available this is Memphis style all the way. Love their beans and potato salad. Wife likes the white cole slaw (they have red too). This place is busy and has a plain atmosphere. But as I'm eating their tender, meaty... More

I have lived in NC for a very long time and have never understood the draw of Brunswick Stew, it just wasn't "my thing". However, on a recent trip I decided to give it try. It was AMAZING! This stew is more of a BBQ soup. It's full of vegetables, has an amazing broth, and delicious BBQ; all in one... More

OMG...this barque was AWESOME! Had a problem at first with the staff as they sat us down but then no returned (looked like shift change). After that was resolved, we had some scrumptious North Carolina bbq. So good, we bought some to bring back to the fam.

The bbq is phenomenal, seriously! We ordered lunch platters all around and added ribs. Except for the corn on the cob everything including the sweet tea was awesome! We decided to go for a walk on the beach and placed a family bbq order to go...so not disappointed. Would make the out of the way drive just to go back.

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
