Hard to find good BBQ north of the Mason-Dixon lime. This place is a hidden gem. Get the pulled pork and craft soda.

This is a good Barbecue joint! It is a self serve style restaurant where you place your order at the register and it is brought to your table. There are approximately 25 seats inside with about five large picnic tables outside under the eaves of the building. The ribs are served Memphis style and there are two house made BBQ... More

Absolutely love the pork bbq! The sandwiches are loaded with meat. Brisket sandwich and burgers are great too! Fresh cut fries is the icing on the cake!

This place turned from hidden gem to a full house...for good reason. Everything is made from scratch, all the different items on the menu are well thought out and pulled of perfectly. The mac and cheese is one my favourite sides, very flavourful. The creamy coleslaw, delicious, the fries perfectly crispy. The ribs excellent as always, it's a dry rub... More

Ordered half rack of ribs and fries. The half rack was undercooked....when done properly the meat should fall off the bone and it did not and this meat was tough. Also, the fries did not taste fresh cut and this was what I expected. Don't plan to return....

Sorry you were disappointed with the ribs. There are two schools of thought on ribs. One is where you cook many ribs at a time in a covered pan with liquid, then when you've cooked all the flavor out of them you put them in the frig til someone orders them, throw them in the mic for a minute and...

Official BBQ still has the best barbecue in the area. Highly recommended. Real fries cut fresh on site, plus meat slow smoked on site. Carolina style.

In the middle of the farms and fields, this place welcomes locals and travelers with equal kindness and good quality. We ate outside in the summer night, under the old fashion sign. The ribs are good and served with no sauce (which you can add later as you please). The pulled pork has a nice kick. Staff friendly and interesting... More

We found this place on trip advisor and went based on the reviews for the food. The ribs were good but I didn't honestly think they deserved the accolades I read on trip advisor. Plus we arrived at 6:30, we ordered 1 1/2 racks of ribs and and they told us they were out of ribs after that (we were... More

We ordered a variety of items from the menu. EVERYTHING sounded so good, how could you just order 1 thing. The corn muffins are AMAZING !!! The wings were great, pulled pork - to die for & the ice cream just topped it all off. We don't live to far from here & will definitely be back !!!!

I just really like the cornbread, especially with the flavored butters they offer it with. The sandwiches and burgers are very large so don't forget you appetite. The pulled pork sandwich is my favorite.
