“From flounder sandwiches to BBQ you can't go wrong”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

We have been going here for years. Great food with lots of choices. Try the fried pickles and their homemade chips.

“Good bbq at a good price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

My family enjoys eating different things here. The bbq is good, but they also have seafood plates, and Mon - Wed they are $6.99. It's affordable for a family of four. I'd you are looking for a fine-dining experience, you may not want to come here. If you are looking for a good meal with friendly service, this place is for you.

“You can do a LOT better.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Barbeque is a staple in this part of the country. This place can't hold a candle to some other BBQ places in the same area. If you want good barbeque not so far away, try Judge's on US 70 near the Valley Mall.

“Best BBQ in Hickory but doesn't hold a candle to Lexington!!”

Really good BBQ at a really good price. Might not be smoked on site but still really good. They have a very good chicken salad with a good smoked flavor. Great for takeout.

“Plain and average.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

We weren't surprised to find the atmosphere so simple (almost picnic style) in a order at the counter barbeque. But usually these home town barbeques have heaping plates full of succulent meat. This was disappointing on both counts, small portions and dry food. I had sliced beef, which was tender but not juicy. My husband had the mixed plate and found the ribs to be much better, even moist. The sides were very good. The baked beans were delicious, with pulled pork and sause added to the usual. The potato salad was also terrific, and the homemade French fries were fluffy inside and crispy outside. Overall, my husband gave this stop higher ratings than I did.
