I tried the ribs; they were outstanding! My wife thought her pulled pork was nearly the best she's ever had. The sides of potato salad and mac-n-cheese were also very good. All in all, the bbq was as good as we've ever had in NC....More

I just wanted to say that I have never been so rudely treated at any restaurant in my life—not just by one employee, but two, and both within the first moments of interacting with them. We had a larger party, and it is a “seat...More
