We have eaten here numerous times and love the brisket and side dishes the best. The sandwiches are piled high with meat. Atmosphere is in line with a NC BBQ place, not fancy and not quiet. It is regularly voted the best restaurant in Concord.

My wife and I had dinner here tonight and the brisket was as good as I have had anywhere in NC. My wife loves the sweet potato casserole and the service is always great.
