Terry's has some of the best brisket I have ever tasted and it is hard getting anything else. Ribs are also very good.

Located on Long Beach Road on the mainland side of Oak Island, Terry's is a small but quite good BBQ place. All products are smoked on the premises. You know it is good if locals go there.

Our daughter says these are the best ever anywhere. She gets them every Wednesday night on our way to church. Brunswick stew is my wife's favorite and I just love it all.

I honestly can't answer that. I am not from the area. We stopped there for lunch while on vacation. I would suggest giving them a call.
