A must stop BBQ place just east of the State Line on Hwy 64. I have been stopping there on my NC trips from Georgia for 25 years. You will be glad you stopped there for the BBQ pork, beef, blackened fish and the onion rings! :-)

We stopped by on Friday afternoon, not too busy. I had ribs, and husband had brisket. The ribs were dry, seemed to be warmed up with sauce poured over them but the brisket was moist.

As soon as we walked in, I looked for the salad bar. It was about 5 feet long, nothing special. We ordered the chopped pork plate. I ordered... More

I have passed by this place many times and say many cars in front. This time I had a chance to visit. The prices wee fair and the wait staff was polite and courteous.

The bbq was very good. The chicken was moist and tender with the right amount of smoke as was the turkey sandwich. The service was excellent. Price was very reasonable.

Have eaten here many times in past 10 years, always a good portion and nice variety for everyone in your group. Salad bar is small, but has a large selection. Great BBQ, try sampler plate.

The food was moist. My husband had the beef and I had turkey. No problems. They even gave us complimentary chocolate chip cookies as it was our first trip!
