Went into this place expecting a BBQ restaurant such as Sonny’s or Jimbo’s. It’s more like a fast food place.
The BBQ sandwich is served with a sweet slaw on top. It soaked through the bun pretty quickly, so eating it requires plenty of napkins. Do you want BBQ sauce with that? I hope not, I didn’t see any. It’s a sign of pride in your BBQ that you don’t serve sauce. I put a little dab of Texas Pete’s on it and enjoyed it. As pulled pork goes, it’s adequate, but no better than I can do at home in a crock pot.
The fries were basic frozen fries, nothing special. I liked that they served my meal on greaseproof paper - no plate, no utensils. It is the basic, no-frills approach that classic BBQ restaurants employ.
It’s a nice break from fast food franchises, and you can get large quantities to go if you’re having a party. I saw many NC license plates in the parking lot, so locals must eat there. That’s as good a sign as any that they offer good food. As a barbecue lover, though, this place is just okay.
