We ordered on line for delivery, which was certainly prompt. However, the food was pretty unrecognizable: cole slaw a gray mash, collard a green mash, shredded pork a brown mash. The vegetables, pork and chicken had one single flavor: vinegar. Simply awful. Never again.

The food was very good, but it is a tight squeeze in a little space. We will eat there again. My wife said the collards were some of the best she ever had.

Here's a classic BBQ joint that hasn't changed in many years. The barbecue, chicken, beans, fries and hushpuppies are delicious. It's a small restaurant so seating at peak times can be challenging. Parking is limited and you may need to cross a heavily traveled road...More

We've lived here about 20 years and have developed a taste for NC BBQ. I saw a comment from someone from Texas that he was disappointed with Ole Time BBQ. Well there is a HUGE difference between Texas and NC BBQ. If you want Texas,...More
