The restaurant is a hole in the wall near Hearon Circle (very close to I 85 ). Our service was excellent the the food was superior. The 1/2 chicken was delicious. The cole slaw was excellent as were the hushpuppies. The special side was fried squash, and that was also excellent. Highly recommended!

They have several sauces to choose from, but we like the western sweet sauce so were very pleased. We got the combo plate and the sauce that came on the ribs made them very juicy and the best of our Carolina experiences. You add whichever flavor sauce you want to the pulled pork. The hush puppies were bready and we... More

We lucked into finding this place via the near me now TA option. We were hunting Carolina BBQ as we were passing through the state. Love all the regional variations.

The food is good with one exception. The ribs,chicken and sides were above O K. The servers were friendly, efficient and accommodating. The except is the pork barbecue. Because I am used to beef Texas barbecue I couldn't squeeze enough flavor to enjoy it. The mustard and vinegar sauces were interesting but didn't bring it near flavorful. I tried the... More
