I was expecting home cooked southern style mouth watering food. Not the case. Everything was pretty much a tasteless chunk of deep fried fat. Service was excellent, and the deep friend corn was interesting, probably the best part of the meal. BBQ was GOOD, but not GREAT. Mac and Cheese tasted like water, worse then the stuff that comes out... More

I have always loved the food. Just gotta say that first. But the staff always seem mad that I am even ordering food. They never say anything rude but never smile or act they live in the south. I hate to say anything bad about the place bc I do love the food but absolutely hate going there and dealing... More

If you're looking for really good food at lunch time and you're limited on your time to get back to work, this is an excellent choice. They get you in and out in a hurry. Their food is excellent. Not only is the barbeque good, but the hot dogs and hamburgers are good as well. Don't forget to grab some... More

The BBQ gave me very bad indigestion. I think they use liquid smoke instead of really hickory smoking the BBQ. I won't go back.

Not much variety, just the basics....chopped BBQ, slaw, etc. By far the best chopped BBQ in the county. My favorite is a BBQ sandwich, fries and a Cheerwine

No ribs, no turkey, no ham, no brisket. Just pulled park, burgers, slaw, and beans. All of it was good, with a nice sauce available. I wouldn't drive 40 miles to eat here, but we were not unhappy when we left.

Fantastic BBQ! Best in Statesville, I think. I do wish they took debit cards though. Tea is good. Addition sides are a little pricey, but good food.
