“Excellent Carolina Q”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Small homey place with friendly staff and excellent barbeque, and so much more! Great service too. My husband and I both chose a chopped pork plate with fried okra and cucumber & onion salad, hushpuppies...and sweet iced tea (we're in the South!). They're open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and great value for your money!

“Friendly family-style place - and good barbecue!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

I was actually headed to another restaurant when the thought of barbecue sounded good - and since I'd seen a full parking lot the night before, I decided to take a chance. I was pleasantly surprised - I had a very good plate of pulled pork barbecue with fresh coleslaw, with a special mention to A&G's Carolina-style vinegar-based barbecue sauce (they even sell it on-site!) Most of the people who were there for lunch were locals - which I always take as a good sign. If you're looking for a quick, satisfying meal of classic Carolina barbeque, this is a good lunch stop.

“Fried Chicken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I am a huge fan of the fried chicken (haven't eaten anything else here, so can't comment on that) staff is very friendly and I enjoy visiting. Not a fancy place what so ever, just good ole down home food and atmosphere!

“Not really...very good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012 via mobile

Staff was nice and kept drinks full. We had bbq sandwiches and fried whiting. Bbq was small and no smoky taste. Fish was over cooked and greasey. It tastes what it lookes like from the outside. Try something else if possible.

“Awesome, consistently tasty food, great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

We've been going to A&G for years and they're consistently wonderful. Friendly servers, hot homemade food and the best Carolina BBQ around. Amazing onion rings and hush puppies! Always clean inside and generous portions for the platters.
