Delicious chicken and bbq. I like their sweet tea. Service is great, friendly. Although it's 'fast food', it's nice that you can order, have a seat and they bring the food to your table.

This is a fried chicken and Carolina BBQ place mainly. Chicken tenders were very large and crispy. Potato salad is good along with the baked beans. Hush puppies are very tasty. BBQ has a little kick to it but you can always had more sauce if you like it hot!

Every time I finish eating here I think to myself why did you eat there but I seem to repeat it every six to nine months. This place is bland nothing special and expensive.

Good food, excellent wait staff. BBQ is always fresh and good. Chicken is best in town. This is a local chain but everyone I have visited they are consistently good

We're not big fans of Eastern NC BBQ but for a vinegar based BBQ it was pretty good. The fried chicken was fantastic as was the coleslaw. The staff was super friendly and professional, they made sure we had everything we needed and that we felt welcomed and comfortable. I wish we had these restaurants in our area! For those... More

Friendly Service and the food is to die for, such large portions and absolutely yummy. We ordered the combo meals and the waitress struggled to carry over the plates to our table, they were overflowing with wonderful bar-b-que. Hush Puppies, Fried Chicken, Pull Pork, potato salad, coleslaw......and monster size soft drink cups.......

While this is not our visit here, it is the first time we have visited for about 4 years. It is the standard limited BBQ menu we have grown accustomed to in eastern regions of NC. Think pulled pork (called BBQ) and fried chicken and you are on the right track. The nice thing about a limited menu is that... More

Barbecue chicken was great, pulled pork was above average and you can't go wrong with the beans and slaw. On top of that, the staff is the most friendly staff I ever met. Great pitstop off 95
