This was our first and last time at this restaurant. Ordered the full slab of ribs special. Ribs were fatty and tough. I had to take a knife and "saw" the meat off the first bone, then could barely chew it. An employee came over and asked it we were enjoying the food. I told him not at all, and... More

The prices were reasonable. The portions were large. My husband and I shared a sampler platter. I didn’t care for the bake beans. They tasted more like chili. The meats were all tender and moist and had a great taste. The people were friendly and helpful. The water tasted moldy and some of the hush puppies were not done. I... More

A bit pricey but the portions are HUGE. I will share a meal with my daughter because there is so much. But the sauces are great. The corn nuggets are huge . Mac and cheese is my favorite. Way too many french fries! You feel bad not being a member of the clean plate club

The food here is good. There is a noticeable difference in taste from time to time, but as a hobbyist who smokes pork shoulders, I understand that the final product doesn't always come out exactly the same every time no matter how much we would like it too. Last trip there my wife got the two pulled pork sandwiches with... More

The pulled pork was plentiful and had a nice smoky flavor. I ate it without any sauce and it was fabulous. Good sides too--I recommend the vinaigrette slaw.

The pork BBQ if you have ever been to NC isn't exactly like down South but its still very good . The closest you can get outside NC seems to be what they serve at Hard Rock Cafe all over. Old Carolinas version however I would not turn down , its still tasty . The slaw is more like some... More

If you like meaty and lean ribs, this is a great place to enjoy them. Prices are a little on the higher side, but the food is down right wholesome and tasty. The fries and slaw are very good, and the tangy rib sauce is perfect.

I love BBQ and this was some of the best I have had... sweet, smokey and not too spicy. It was served at a banquet I attended and I don't think I bothered eating anything else there!
