“East Carolina BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Good location High Y 70 Kinston N.C. Not as good as it was in the 1970's better than a lot lot lot of other attemps at getting good BBQ now days. I don't think they grow Pigs the same!

“Best downeast BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Went thru the carry out on way back to Cary. Love the BBQ and seafood. Best BBQ that I've had in a long time. Had the large BBQ "pulled pork" plate. Comes with two sides and hush puppies. A trip back in time...

“Cardiac Arrest Pit Stop”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

If you're in the mood for grease the buffet will serve you well. If you're remotely into eating healthy...drive on. I chose not to eat here but did take one bite of my companion's BBQ/pulled pork. Found it to be dry & stringy. Service was less than desirable. In fairness to the restaurant, I will say it is probably a decent choice for family with kids & anyone into literally pigging out!

“Wish I lived in Kinston!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Actually, I dont because Id probably weigh 500 pounds! The chicken, bbq, setting, and staff were nothing but great. It is just as much a part of NC as Tobacco Road.

“Get the Pig in a Puppy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is North Carolina pulled pork BBQ at its best. We stop here on our way to the NC seashore and on our way home every year. This year, I finally ordered the Pig in a Puppy -- It's a pulled pork BBQ sandwich with w giant hushpuppy as a bun! It was totally delicious. Wash it down with some sweet tea. Trust me on this. The prices are so reasonable, the service is friendly. Love this place!
