“Yummy BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

We traveled there with our family of 6, while visiting for the weekend. 2 adults, 3 children and 1 baby. Small place so there was a bit of a wait (30 min). Not too bad for a Saturday night, we just went next door to the Depot and shopped around. They even send a hostess over to get you! Prices were not outrageous, high chairs available, friendly staff. Overall, great restaurant. Will eat there again.

“Great BBQ! Great Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Check menu online if you're concerned about prices. Has great choices with both entrée and sides. My friend is from Memphis, and me eastern NC. Upon arriving, the hickory smoked and pit cooked will get your appetite going. It is closed on Mondays. Very casual setting Service was on point, and pleasant, attentive. Small dining area, full bar, with blues music playing in background. We had the BBQ plates. Mine with a side of Mac N Cheese which was authentic, baked, not soupy, but cheesy. Nothing fake about it. They offer you three types of cole slaw - yellow (mustard base), white (mayonnaise base), and red (vinegar base). I had the yellow - delicious, my friend had the red - delicious. She also had sweet potato something (sorry can't recall the complete name), and it was great - it is served cold as a side. We have no complaints, and enjoyed it immensely. We will be back.

“Quality is at the top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

This is world class BBQ. I'm a long way from home, but would come back here. You don't need a knife, the meat is so tender and equally flavorful.

“Good Food for a leisurely meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Very yummy traditional BBQ with some great sides with a twist. The sweet potatoes are great and unlike any I have ever had. The red slaw is great for those of us that do not eat mayo based slaws and it pairs so well with the meat. Service can be slow and hit or miss, but not a big deal if you have the time.

“A little bit of hog heaven in West Hillsborough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

I've been in love with this place from first bite. Wonderful Carolina pork bbq, awesome brisket, and to die for fried okra. All while washing it down with a selection of local micro brews. Oh, and their tea is great too.

I never get here often enough.
