I stumbled across this BBQ joint looking for a place to have dinner - lucky me. Their Carolina style pork BBQ was some of the best I've had. I don't know of any other way to describe it. I had green beans and fried okra sides, both of which were home style and very good. Even the hush puppies were... More

Stopped and had their BBQ Tray. BBQ and Cole Slaw were excellent but the portion was only the size of a sandwich. I ordered a tray and saw that it was a sandwich without a bun when I got my bill. Would have ordered a larger plate had I been informed when ordering. Food and prices are great and free... More

Went looking for some BBQ and stumbled on this restaurant. They were so helpful in deciding what I wanted to eat. Showed me the best deal. Made sure that everything was hot after they delivered it to me. The amt. of food was more than enough and very tasty. The waitresses were very accommodating and friendly.

Hog Heaven catered a business event for us. Everything was delicious! I will be going to the restaurant in the near future.

Ribs not offered daily but pulled pork and brisket is. Learned the NC bbq sauce is vinegar based. As I poured it out of the bottle in was so thin-like vinegar- but I really liked the flavor. Hopping with both eat in and take out customers.

I love hog heaven, the chicken and hush puppies are great. I'm not really a big fun of the side but considering the price this place is definitely worth the trip.

A little hard to find because there is no large sign outside, but once inside, the food is great and large portions. Service is friendly and efficient. BBQ was very good. Banana pudding was excellent!

It's an older place but clean and the food is exactly what you came for: NC barbeque, fries, slaw, hushpuppies, and other good soul food. The ice tea was great and the waitress could not have been more pleasant. This is a great place to stop for a quick, hot, great tasting (and inexpensive) meal!

This place offers a very good menu to choose from whether you want chicken, BBQ (NC vinegar based), or fish plates. They also offer a good selection of veggies. You can also order family packs. We have never been disappointed in our meals. You may meet with a grumpy person behind the counter where you place your order but the... More
