Looked for BBQ in Tripadvisor and let the GPS steer us to this place. The drive there was a little dodgy but was more than rewarded once we got there. Great food (did not know there was a difference in NC and other BBQ - NC was good and a nice change). Good service and non-touristy prices on the menu.... More

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. They gave you a good portion of sides just not enough BBQ. As much BBQ I've eaten at other places this was the smallest portion... More

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.
