I have never had a problem with the food. The rude, arrogant treatment I encountered today convinced me to never come back. I had my money refunded.

Cape Fear has fresh NC barbeque, baked beans, cole slaw, potato salad and some of the best Brunswick Stew you will ever taste! Don't worry they have your hush puppies too and sweet tea too!

I stopped in here for lunch with a coworker. All members of the staff were extremely friendly and not just the staff working the counter but the cooks and wait staff as well.

Food was made to order and hot when served. The building was old but clean. It was nothing special for chicken and BBQ.

My wife had the pulled pork with baked beans and fries. She gave me a taste of the pork and beans and both were pretty tasty. I... More

Was advised to try this local place from the hotel staff at red roof. I had the pulled pork sandwich which was very moist and delish. The fries were cooked fresh. I would go back if we stay go back to the area.
