The BBQ was great..... We will be back! This place was tucked away behind the lighthouse on a side road. We stumbled upon it by accident, glad we did because it was a great find

True NC style barbecue, extremely tender and moist. Service was fantastic - super nice. One large sandwich was enough for two people as was the meal that comes with two sides. The sides were tasty too. Good prices, outside seating (picnic tables) was clean.

Simple and plain, but great food and service. The guy taking our order was very friendly and efficient, even gave us a deal. Food was great, very big sandwich for the price, wife and I got the pulled pork w/slaw. Been here before and they never fail !!
