“Real NC BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

They serve authentic NC BBQ, Hushpuppies, Boiled Potatoes, Slaw, Pies, BBQ chicken and even turkey BBQ. Many places no longer serve turkey BBQ so it's great to have it so close to home. The staff is nice and treat you like family. They really are the best in the area. Make sure to get a big glass of real sweet tea to go with it.

“Always Great!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I've eaten here dozens of times and love the place! Try the BBQ tray. It's served in a hot dog tray. You won't be disappointed and the serving size is just right. Comes with BBQ, slaw, and hush puppies.

The food was delicious, very tasty, and yet not too salty. Friendly, positive atmosphere providing excellent customer service.

“Oh my, this is the real deal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

There's a funny sign out front that says "Area's best Barbecue". Since the area is the tiny town of Littleton, there's no competition. But it would be very difficult to open a barbecue restaurant with better food than Grandpa's. I ordered the BBQ pork plate with potatoes and black-eyed peas. Potatoes have a nice light sauce to them. Black-eyed peas are very good with a smoky country ham flavor. The ladies got the BBQ chicken plate with cole slaw and potato salad. I don't normally like potato salad and cole slaw, but these were both excellent. Plenty of hush puppies on both plates. The chicken and pork were incredibly good. I heard from friends that the bbq turkey was even better. We ordered carry out and the wait was less than five minutes. I wouldn't hesitate to eat inside. Its clean and comfortable. I will go back.

The people that own this place are really nice and friendly. You have the option to get turkey or pork bbq. They all kinds of vegetables. Really inexpensive.
