“terrible food and service”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

not traditional NC Bar-B-Que. The service is lacking at this restaurant. The food is more like prepackaged food that they heat up and put it on the buffet.

“Not spectacular food, but friendly staff and nice feel”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

Ate here with our party of 13. Seated quickly. Food was OK. Chopped pork BBQ was classic vinegar based NC style and not bad for what it was. Chicken pretty good. Ok salad bar. Poor desserts. Note that I do not care for buffets in general but thought this was better than most. The rest of our group liked it a lot and one boy had 4 plates of the pork BBQ.

“Good Ole Down Home Eats”
Reviewed November 3, 2011

Yum!

I've been occasionally going to Ole NC BBQ for the last 4 or 5 years for lunch and for the most part I've always left satisfied.

They have a great buffet of Southern Favorites. Pork BBQ, BBQ chicken, catfish, fried okra, Lima beans and corn, mashed potatoes, chicken and dumplings, Brunswick stew, etc .... They have a nice selection of veggies and desserts and a salad bar too.

The service has always been excellent and very friendly. They have some really sweet people working the tables.

The atmosphere is very "old school" with a music selection from the 50's and 60's.

You'll see a really nice cross section of people there. Black, White and Latino, blue collar, white collar, families, young and old ....

They've been around forever for a reason ... Go check them out!
