They serve mustard-based Bar-B-Que. Not real Bar-B-Que. But that's just my preference. Try another place.

I have been to this place twice on trips along I-77. The food is mediocre - they use a mustard/vinegar based sauce which is just okay. The "rib platter" had 2 and a half not very meaty ribs. The ribs were not especially tasty. The BBQ pulled pork sandwich was equally bland. The counter staff were disinterested despite the fact that they were not busy - perhaps that's why.

This place has a long and storied reputation in this part of the country. I was NOT impressed. Very mediocre. Not advised for true BBQ lovers. The chopped pork was mundane, very little smoked flavor, could have been oven roasted instead of smoked or fire roasted. very ordinary, and mine was cold. Cole slaw was terrible. Sauce was interesting, but far from the best I've ever had. Best thing on my plate was the Carolina BBQ Hash, it was very tasty. Would have been better if it had been served hot. Again the food was cold. It's interesting to hear that Maurice's claims their food was named Best BBQ in the USA (by whom?) I won't be going back.
