This restaurant had good food. The fried fish was fresh, the fried chicken was crispy and the chopped nc style pork was on point. It had the proper amount of flavor but did not overpower the flavor of the pork.

This is kind of a tough review for me since I really like Rocky Mount Bar-B-Q which has been around for sixty plus years, but truthfully, the food and service and sort of what you would expect - nothing exceptional. Don't get me wrong, I like the place and will stop there again, but it is simply not that amazing.... More

I had a few side dishes, all of which were delicious and tasted homemade. Hubby and our friend had BBQ, both said it was very good. Will be... More

The staff was the friendliest I've seen anywhere in a very long time. They must have a lot of regulars as they were calling some of the customers by name. Made the visit feels very down-home. Food was good, although I prefer Famous Dave's Bar-B-Que sauces but everyone has their own tastes. Would stop again when in the area.

I don't order anything else from this establishment besides the BBQ ribs. The ribs here are extra juicy and they just seem to fall off the bone. I also like their BBQ vinegar sauce. I use this as a dipping sauce for my ribs. My mouth is watering as i type this review.
