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.

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

Very attentive wait staff after placing your order, delivered your order to your table and made sure that your drinks remained filled. Best Chicken around, hush puppies, and got a combo platter that included shredded barbecue pork

Excellent BBQ and chicken. Service is great more time than not by the time you find a seat your food is ready. I am not a tea drinker but understand it also is good.

Thank Ed P
