Best in town

With so many Barbeque restaurants around now, this one is still my favorite. Love their red slaw, which most of the others don't have, And the cobbler!!! Just like Lexington style that I grew up with.

I am not much when it comes to BBQ, but I must say this place has some of the best BBQ I have ever eaten. Plenty of flavor, and not too greasy. Prices are great.. Don't miss this one.

I've dined here a few times and i think the quality has slipped a little over the years, either that, or other places have moved in and started seriously playing the game. It's definitely authentic - however the fast-food mom and pop type vibe inside could use a little update. The portions were meager though and while the meat was... More

Small place with great food. Always crowded, always friendly. We live locally, and stop in regularly and have never been disappointed.

If you want true barbeque, this is the place. We got take out of ribs and pulled pork and it was all very, very good. The ribs were meaty and a half rack was a perfect portion. The small order of the pulled pork is more than enough for an adult. They were very busy on Friday night but our... More

We were a party of 9 adults, 4 children & 2 infants. The girls were going to The Grape and Ale at 6pm for a painting (wine drinking) class, so we arrived at 4pm for an early dinner. We walked right in and sat at 3 back to back booths! The server was terrific! She was very patient with all... More

We've been to Oak Island many times but this was our first visit to BBQ house. We were not disappointed. There was a wait and didn't appear to be seating for a table of 10 so we opted for takeout. Waited 30m (what they said it would be) and took it home. Pulled pork was just that, so you'll need... More

Good selection and tasty food. Friendly wait staff. Avoid this place if you are in a hurry; we hit it just right and got in after about 15 minutes of waiting. It is a tight fit, so those who don't like closed spaces might want take-out.

Wonderful barbeque and great sides for take-out. A group of about 8 was fed for around $60. There was a little bit of a wait, but worth it.
