This is a family friendly restaurant, The food selection is good for BBQ lovers, chicken, and vegetarians eaters. They have a large selection of vegetables to chose from that are all very tasty. I also love the warm hush puppies you get a soon as you sit down. The prices are very reasonable, a nice dinner for $10 or under.... More

Food was great and service and staff were quick and friendly. We just wished we got more for what we paid for, we got the large saucy BBQ, didn't seem like a large at all.

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
