I have tried many BBQ places in this area, and this is by far the best. I have had the sausage sandwich and plate, pulled pork sandwich, chicken, okra, fries, corn...well I have tried many items on their menu. All were delicious. They also have the best sweet tea around. I go through the drive thru window several times a... More

I have eaten at Sweeney's many times and I have NEVER been disappointed. The food is truly down home coming at its best. Try it, you will NOT be disappointed.

I have eaten a lot of bar-b-q in my life. Sweeney's has the best I have ever eaten. They say North Carolina has the best, but not has good as Sweeney's. Since moving to NC, I haven't had a good bar-b-q dinner. Can't wait to go go back to Harrison to good real bar-b-q.

Barbeque is great, good atmosphere with a bar area separate from the other area. They have a patio outside that area also.

I had the pulled pork, fried okra, and baked beans plate with cornbread. We also had delicious fried pickles to start with. The pork meat was pretty good and I loaded it with the house hot and thick sweet sauce. The meat and sauces was a very good combination. I do not think the beans and okra were home made,... More

We were in town for youth football and the place was recommended. Place looks great, staff was friendly the menu has variety for bar-b- que place. That's were it went bad. Three people tried to get our order but no one followed up on bringing our drinks. It was feast or famished, when he didn't need anything three people would... More

This restaurant has been on Hwy. 58 for many years. The Bar-B-Q has always been very good whether we eat in or drive through.The prices are reasonable.

Basic BBQ setup with good food. I had the pulled pork regular sandwich with mustard slaw and it was delicious. The sauces they provide are decent but not amazing I tried them all: sweet, mild, spicy. The service was good and the price was right. Plenty of parking outside.

I had the pulled pork tater and my husband had a cheeseburger with fries. Delicious food. The tater was loaded with meat and my husband enjoyed his burger and fries.
