The food here was good but I would not say spectacular. However the service was fantastic. Before we ordered we were asked if it was our first time there and upon saying yes the guy put out a generous portion of pulled pork and some ribs for us to sample. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and it was a great introduction to Southern hospitality for us. Besides the food, we also tried their special lemonade which they laced with some pineapple juice and that was nice...gonna do that to my lemonade when I next make some. It is definately a good place to stop if you are passing through.

I am starting to acquire a taste for NC BBQ and this place serves it up as good as anywhere. It is a little disorganized. It is reasonably priced

Great BBQ Great chicken. Great sides
Funky atmosphere. Had a chance to talk with the owner and head cook, both really sweet guys. Go round back and check out the mobile BBQ trailers.

Have been here six times since we discovered it after my daughter recently moved to the area. Fantastic pork bbq! Also tried the brisket and turkey (they were out of pork on one visit). The brisket was rather fatty and I didn't like the sauce/gravy on it. The turkey was good but we would stick with the pork. Numerous sides, all are good. Hush puppies are delicious. You get pork bbq, two sides and hush puppies for $6.50. Very low key decor. Staff was great, even made fun of my obvious northern accent on our first visit! Our new favorite place!

"Surprising" because it's the kind of place that is very unassuming: a small and simple building that looks a bit rundown, alongside a highway next to a liquor store and across the street from a car repair center ... Not exactly where you might expect to find great dining, but go inside and you'll find staff that are eager to please and will go out of their way to help you (indeed, during our last visit, one of the staff came from behind the counter to just comfort and entertain a baby who had begun crying), a very diverse menu (chicken, fish, pork, beef, vegetables), some of the tastiest and most tender BBQ you'll find, and excellent prices. Clientele included folks from across the socioeconomic spectrum (if that even matters), including many professional business people from nearby research companies. Dining is very casual and pleasant. Family owned and they appear to be doing a great job and are appropriately proud of their work! http://www.sweetribs.com/
