Old school. Better than average

Worth a stop if you're in the area. The baked beans are excellent, homemade and tasty. Not too sweet, with bits of meat, cole slaw was cold and crisp with light dressing. Pork sandwich was huge, was good, not very smoky but flavorful. The assortment of homage sauces were outstanding with a wide... read more

We walked to this place from the hotel as they had recommended it because it had good food and also had beer. This was not a traditional sit-down meal but it worked out well. The food was very good and it was a reasonable price as well. They don't have a big selection of beers but they do have them... More

Being from NC, I'm serious about bbq. When we entered the doors, I was immediately impressed by the decor and the delicious smokey smell. The menu is simple with a good variety of sides to compliment bbq. The corn fritters were my favorite. The pork bbq moist and the sandwich was very generous. Although I am a fan of vinegar... More

BBQ was delicious! Sauces are served warm and there are 5 to choose from (all of which are great). Menu includes sandwiches, plates, ribs. Sides are great and change daily.

Service was quick. The BBQ didn't have much of a smoky flavor by itself. The sauce selection was ok, which was good because you really needed the sauces to enjoy the meat. Sides were above average and not out of a can.

Stopped in for a late lunch while visiting the area. Being from Eastern NC, we love BBQ and wanted to try the SC version. I got the pork dinner with collards and baked beans while my husband got the pork sandwich. The BBQ without any sauce is nothing to brag about and contained some rather large chunks of skin. Skin...

This was our first time coming to the restaurant after we came for a football game. After going up and down the road searching for a place to eat I found this place on Google maps. I read the reviews but decided to try it anyway. My husband and I had the pulled pork, green beans, slaw, fries and mac... More

The food was good, but not great. We enjoyed the BBQ sauce options, but the sandwiches were not anything special.

My wife and i went here on the recommendation of the local UPS store owner "John ". The food was excellent. I had the pork supper (pulled pork) , with baked beans and mac & cheese. All three were great. Mac & cheese was the best I've ever had. The wife had the ribs, and coleslaw. The ribs were by... More
