Fresh, genuine, delicious bbq. We chose the ample buffet and finished with hot, fresh, homemade peach cobbler. Nothing fancy here-just really good food. My wife is not a huge bbq fan and she thought it was great.

I am happy that I stopped. It is certainly better than fast food. And I’m not sure that I will stop again but maybe try another one of the barbecue places here in town.

Saw a sign on the road and I'm glad I stopped for lunch. Had the $8.99 all you can eat bar b que buffet. I don't think they made any $$ on me! If you like this kind of food a can't miss best bet.

This popular, very local eatery is best enjoyed at lunch. About 2 city blocks west on E. Main St. off of I-95 at 336 exit. Friendly and good, reasonably priced menu, including very good barbecue.

My husband and I have been here twice on our trips North, totally by accident. Next time we'll come on purpose. Service is friendly, food is delicious, and prices are amazingly reasonable.

We came in out of the rain and were pleasantly surprised. It was mid afternoon and there were several tables of people. The food was continually replenished. Great ribs and nice side dishes. Some of the food could have been hotter and the ice cream...More

To my knowledge, they don't offer burgers, but I would recommend contacting them on Thursday to find out. They're open Thursday through Saturday.

I don't recall any issues, and I hate heat, so I'm going to say yes, the restaurant is air-conditioned.
