Went to this place for lunch. At first I was not sure if I made the right decision, because the waitress came and threw the plastic forks on the table and walked off. But when she came back she was nice, she had told me the boss told her to sweep under the tables and clean the windows real fast.... More

This is a popular joint and as Barbeque places go in NC, this is average at best. It is the only game in town, so it's often crowded, particularly for dinner. The service is friendly and efficient. They do have a wide variety of sauces to put of your Q, including Eastern NC and Western NC Styles, as well as... More

Best spot my family and I visited while in oak island. Tried ribs and pork bbq and weren't disappointed. Great price for great food and a couple awesome sauces as well. I highly recommend the sweet and spicy sauce. This is the kind of food I wish we had up north but the best we normally find are good imposters,... More

This place is amazing! And a new MUST when visiting Oak Island. We first ordered last year as a last resort type of thing.. but we fell in love. Now it's a new regular. I love their pork and hot wings. Those wings are really hot and amazing. I wish I lived closer so I could make it a regular... More

We are from Winston Salem where they do BBQ every day all day and very close to Lexington (BBQ capital of the WORLD). So hard to convince me that you have good barbeque. This place did it AND the staff is SO Nice and they were slammin busy. Even though they could barely breathe, our take out order was taken... More

We love getting take out from this place everytime we visit OKI. We have never had a bad meal and we have ordered it all. Both the red and white slaw are great as ate all of the sauces. The corn bites are a must get and the ribs melt in your mouth.

A good BBQ Place we have been eating at for several years! It can get busy in the evenings so plan ahead, you might have to wait 10-15 mins maybe to get a seat. Food is always excellent and tasty too! Several different BBQ sauces on your table to sample! Prices are comparable to other BBQ shacks, so enjoy and... More
